Cioccoshow edition 2017

Cioccoshow is the most important Italian event dedicated to the world of traditional chocolate which, since 2005, has been held every year in Bologna in November. Over the course of the years the exhibition, open to the public with free admittance, has grown rapidly reaching 330.000 visitors during the five days that the last show was open.

Since it started, right up to today, in the midst of the mediaeval buildings of the city centre, the visitors have been able to find the best hand-made chocolate products created by artisans coming from all over Italy and from abroad.

Besides promoting the traditional production of chocolate, Cioccoshow increases the tourist attraction of a city known throughout the world for its gourmet culture, which has always been synonymous with taste and quality, increasing its prestige also at international level.
