La Piazza dei Mestieri works towards developing the often hidden potential of young people during the delicate phase that takes them from adolescence to adult life.
The project involves the presence of great "master craftsmen", who introduce young people to the world of work, getting them involved in both production and market sales, in a typical school/workshop setting.
The productions of chocolate, beer and baked goods, as well as the restaurant and the La Piazza Brewery have thus created places for young people to get together, learn and feel supported into the world of work through the daily creation of handmade products of excellence.
Thanks to the creativity of the chocolate chefs, Salvatore and Marina Minniti, and from the passion of all the La Piazza dei Mestieri chocolatiers, a range of products made with delicious handmade chocolate has been developed. Numerous recipes, both classic or revisited, that unite tradition with the desire to experiment. New high quality raw materials, with cocoa from South America and prized local hazelnuts. The skill, love and passion put into these products make them unique, thought out using various combinations of tastes and surprising flavours that are sure to provide moments of pure pleasure.
