Perugia is preparing for the biggest festival of the year: Eurochocolate. Starting tomorrow (Thursday) the city will be filled with chocolate. From Piazza Italia down Via Vanucci to the Duomo, there are empty stalls waiting to be filled. We are having fun imagining what temptations all these empty cases will hold tomorrow.
This is the 20th year of Eurochocolate and the theme is “EverGreen: la sostenibile dolcezza dell’essere” “EverGreen: the sweetness of being sustainable.” Eurochocolate promises to use renewable resources in planning, setting up, and running the festival. The official car of the festival is the Nissan LEAF and there are supposed to be electric bikes running around town to deliver purchases to your house (how much chocolate do they expect us to purchase?!). We’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, Simon is looking forward to trying a CioccoCappuccino:
