The legendary Modica chocolate, with its unique olfactory and emotional surprises, invites you to discover the secret of the splendor of sugary crystals realized by skilled creators of good and beautiful.
In the chocolate-flavoured city, the medieval churches of the ancient capital of the County and the eighteenth-century churches “embroidered” in stone persist, and the palaces adorned with festive baroque portals and grotesque masks supporting iron and flowered volutes also revive.
To celebrate and tell the story, the goodness, the authenticity of this treasure, ancient and ever new, Modica stops, on the weekend of the Immaculate Conception, and celebrates. Transforming their spaces and making them even sweeter, bringing together people, talking with historians and experts, having fun putting their hands in (cocoa) paste, together with all those with a sweet tooth and those curious about good things of centuries-old tradition. And what makes this celebration – full of conferences, workshops, presentations, games, laboratories, events, shows, demonstrations, entertainment – ever more beautiful and engaging is the fact that for three days, from 7 to 10 December 2023, tourists and residents, tasters and producers take to the streets to take part in the same game: a sort of treasure hunt where history wins.
