I love festivals in Italy. They are so wonderful. As it turns out, there is a chocolate festival right here in Vicenza the week after Perugia’s big one. It was actually quite a bit different from the one in Perugia. The one in Perugia was very “corporate”, lot’s of big companies. But the one here in Vicenza was very mom and pop local. There were all kinds of chocolate sculptures. You can buy chocolate shoes, chocolate egg, chocolate tools, chocolate cheese or sausage…you name it. Loved it.
