Launched in December 13th, 2014, Il Gelato del Marchese is a story of a Gelateria like no other.
The bright and elegant parlor of Saint-Germain-des-Prés is the proof that chance, if it exists, knows how to unite souls and dreams to make admirable fantasies realize. What we call magic or spell, as we will, is the result of a succession of meetings. That of an ambitious Marquis and a wonderful woman who will later become Marquise of the Marquis.
The dream of Il Gelato takes root in Renato’s suitcase, when he leaves the great Roma, his hometown, to settle in Paris. He carried with him a very different culture, some goods that will remind him of where he comes from, but above all, a bunch of dreams to accomplish. Most will take shape right away, others will stay somewhere in his thoughts becuase of the lack of time.
He then meets Veronika, who will become a new source of inspiration, but also the one that will trigger his ideas! Renato can now put a name, words and images on his ideas. The dream of Il Gelato is shaped little by little, and then sees the light. The challenge is huge : doing better than the Italian artisanal ice cream, making the best ice cream in the world!
The universe is full of surprises, and it makes them cross the path of people who will know how to put shape to their ideas.
The sketch is simple, but very strict. There must be no compromise to achieve excellence. Only the best products and the best know-how will be chosen. That was how Il Gelato del Marchese was born, by a combination of several talents and intuitions. But all this would be nothing without an essential element: love. There is a high dose of love in our ice cream and it feels like it!
Since leaving Rome with a suitcase, the road has been very long. And during all these years, the idea of making an artisanal ice cream has become the concept of Il Gelato del Marchese, the first prestigious and gourmet ice cream in the world.
