In the face of the heat wave, discover the best ice cream makers in the world!

The Gelato Festival World elected the best ice cream makers in the world, an opportunity to discover new flavors while facing the summer temperatures.


Since 2019, Italians and their love of gelato has led them to elect the best gelato makers in the world, awarded by the Gelato Festival World Ranking. Since 2010, this prestigious competition awards artisan gelato makers, based on a complex multi-year ranking system. The Gelato Festival World Ranking is the result of a partnership between Gelato Festival, Carpigiani and Sigep IEG Expos. Artisans are judged on several criteria, including technique, quality and combination of ingredients, and taste.


And this year, Marco Venturino, owner of the ice cream parlour I Giardini di Marzo, located in the town of Varazze, in the province of Savona, was named best artisan ice cream maker, receiving three crowns for his Bocca di Rosa ice cream. This frozen dessert is made of milk, white chocolate and a base of homemade rose water.



In second place was Adam Fazekas, owner of the Fazekas Crukraszda ice cream shop in Budapest, Hungary. He won over the jury with his fruit and pistachio ice cream. He won over the jury with his fruit and pistachio ice cream. The latter, slightly salted, is served with raspberry paste with tonka bean and wafers. This multi-flavored ice cream stood out from the crowd because it is made from all-natural ingredients, with no additives or artificial colors, just like all the ice creams offered on site.



The third place went to Giovanna Bonazzi, owner of “La Parona del Gelato” in Verona. On the ice cream shop’s website, we learn that ice cream is in her blood and that even as a child she knew what her ambition would be: “When I grow up, I would like to be a ski instructor in the winter and an ice cream maker in the summer.” Giovanna loves to experiment with new flavors and attends ice cream and parfait seminars several times a year in order to perfect her skills.
