Spreads, dragées, pralines and chocolate bars expertly crafted by artisans in the Chocolate Factory in the Chocolate Valley, under the guidance of master chocolatier Andrea Slitti

November 2023 - It is no secret that Italians are a population of great chocolate consumers : after meals, as a snack, at breakfast, any moment is a good time to indulge in a dark or milk "pamper", melted or in the form of a praline , depending on your tastes. During the holidays , then, thanks to the winter season and the opportunity to indulge in an extra treat, this product cannot be missing from the laid tables, ready to be enjoyed in all its varieties.


Slitti , one of the most important Italian artisan chocolatiers , knows this well , whose Chocolate Factory is located in Monsummano Terme, in the province of Pistoia, and which recently opened its first flagship store in Florence (Piazza dell'Olio, 6): a single-brand store with elegant and refined furnishings , where the marble and brass finishes are the masters and the color nuances in the palette with the brand's flagship products, but also the wallpaper with cocoa beans to decorate the environments.


A space which, due to its attention to detail and customer care, fully represents the deepest soul of Slitti and its Maitre Chocolatier Andrea Slitti , today at the helm of the Monsummano Terme factory. And it is Andrea Slitti himself who, on the occasion of Christmas just around the corner, has decided to select three top products from the chocolate collection , all gluten-free , ideal for a gift or to enjoy with the family.


  • The flagship of Slitti production are the spreadable creams , Riccosa, Gianera, Slittosa and Nocciolata , whose fine taste contributes to the quality of the raw material coming from Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, Jamaica, Santo Domingo and Madagascar . The first, Riccosa, recently obtained the prestigious "Platinum Award" at the Winehunter Award 2023;
  • Followed by the pralines , preserved in assorted gift boxes suitable for a tasty treat and at the same time capable of satisfying even the most demanding palate. There is something for all tastes: Espresso, Cappuccino, Caffè Sambuca, Caffè Turco (winners of the 2023 Tavoletta d'Oro Award), Irish Coffee and Caffè Cocco , all handcrafted and gluten-free;
  • Last, but not least, the Gran Cacao Bars and in particular the multiple award-winning 73% , winner of the Compagnia del Cioccolato Twentieth Anniversary Award at the last Taste Firenze, invented by Maitre Slitti to meet every taste and flavor need: from the most classic 45% Lattenero Bars (invented by the Maitre) up to the most extreme "Gran Cacao" 100% Dark Chocolate Bar , made with cocoa beans from Central America, whose acidity mixed with meltability leaves an unmistakable aroma in the mouth.

The opening of the first store in Florence, in the beating heart of a place where tourists arrive from all over the world, enthusiastic about discovering the architectural and cultural beauties of our country, is an achievement of which we are deeply proud, because it gives us the opportunity to reach our customers even further, to welcome them in a space that we feel is ours, that we wanted, studied and created specifically to represent the soul of Slitti: craftsmanship, Made in Italy, tradition, but also experimentation and a look to the future - comments Andrea Slitti - Here customers are the protagonists of a real sensorial experience, a journey to discover what can arise when the quality of the raw material meets the passion of a craftsman" .
