The family's confectionery tradition was established in 1911, when grandfather Mario began to produce and sell ice cream as a street vendor and at various events, with his "little cart".
The tradition was then taken on by his daughter Marisa, who followed her father's footsteps as a street vendor for a few years until, in 1982, she opened her first coffee shop dedicated to selling retail coffee and ice-cream. In 2002, the ice-cream shop also became a pastry shop with the incorporation of a department run by Lucca in production and by mother Marisa and her sister Erica in sales... LEM!
At first glance, a short, insignificant, three lettered word. Yet for those who designed it, it carries a multitude of meanings: L for Lucca, E for Erica, M for Marisa. Three names, three people, three different temperaments that over time have exquisitely merged like chocolate, combined like ingredients, harmonized like flavours, in support, with the passing of the seasons, of their tireless research, trusting in their creation of innovative and intense emotional taste experiences.
While, in their memories, father and grandfather Mario's satisfied facial expressions, the glow of his smug eyes and the sweet sound of his booming voice accompanies them. He who was able to teach, to imprint, to make his mark on all of them: a passion that is truly shared through your renewed and welcome presence.
