Easter in Florence, Easter at Alessi: an Italian story

Italian? Expat? We cover you with everything is Easter-ish! The main feature at Easter are the Easter Egg, l’Uovo di Pasqua, and the Colomba, literally “Easter Dove”. While the Italy – wide popularity of this dove – shaped cake is quite recent (Angelo Motta “invented” the commercial version of the Colomba in Milan, in the Thirties, to repeat the huge success of his Christmas Panettone), its story dates to the Middle Ages and it is related with the iconography of the Holy Spirit: a dove. In the Sicilian version of the Colomba the cake includes a boiled egg, a symbol of rebirth. No boiled eggs involved in the craft Colomba you can find at Alessi, but we have some very special Colomba, even with Extra Virgin Olive Oil! And the Easter Egg is indeed the other main Easter feature. If you think it is only for kids, well: think again. Here at Alessi we have a huge variety of Easter Eggs with high – quality chocolate, dark chocolate, dried fruit chocolate… Stuff that you can match with a good Whisky, Ron or Calvados…
