Internationally renowned pastry chefs will talk to maestro Iginio Massari in the format “Different visions, great ideas”. Furthermore, two new books will be presented by the master from Brescia: “The great Italian pastry - volume 2” with Italian Gourmet and another on the biochemical technique in pastry, as well as his newborn association dedicated to the world of sweets. Italian Gourmet offers a focus on sustainability as a business factor, from zero waste to circular pastry: a theme that will see three great pastry chefs confront each other on the effects and opportunities of the increasing attention of consumers to ethical issues on the origin and use of raw materials, bringing their direct experience on how to face the challenge in pastry shops.

Still on the subject of territory, the Academy of Italian sourdough and panettone masters will give an overview of the variations that panettone expresses when it encounters raw materials, history and traditions of the territory.
