Looking for the words to tell others, Pasticceria Giotto feels most at home with the concept of craftsmanship. Their kitchens lie at the heart of an unconventional confectioner's: a simple place where sweets are not produced but baked, involving inmates of the prison of Padua. The firm's goal is to achieve absolute quality . Every day the pastry chefs teach 25 detained students the techniques, timing and ethics of an art that allows the student to slowly mature and follow a path of change, with real possibilities for the future.
The work performed by the young inmates restores their dignity and gives their lives new meaning. Comparing their work with that of the master confectioner becomes a moment of growth, and the commitment of the individual is valued as a secret behind good teamwork.
The quality raw materials, long natural leavening time, careful study of recipes and manual processing whenever possible, together with a passion for life, are the special ingredients of Pasticceria Giotto. The secret of baked products is the 72 hours of dough preparation, resulting in a soft and fragrant mixture with a balanced taste. A search for excellence combined with a commendable social project.
Over the years this commitment has led to the firm receiving awards from industry panels, having among its admirers very special palates, including those of Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis.
The quality of the products offered in Italy and overseas, and work perceived as a chance to return to a decent life, represent the path that Pasticceria Giotto intends to follow for its own future and for that of its youngsters.
