PUNTOITALY No33 - January 2023

MIG Longarone (Italy), 27 - 30 November It definitely was not a coincidence that the organizers of Mig Longarone chose an entirely green-coloured logo to identify this 62nd edition. Sustainability and connection to the territory were the cardinal rules that acted as a theme for this exhibition. This theme was reiterated by the prestigious MIG Green Award, that aims to recognize the effort of exhibiting companies regarding their care for the environment. As tradition dictates, there were numerous competitions dedicated to gelato chefs, such as the 52nd edition of the Coppa d’Oro 2022. The flavour this year was Malaga raisin, and the competition was won for the second time by Barbara Bettera. The Mastri Gelatieri Award was awarded to the Gio- litti family from Rome, which has reached its fifth generation. They are authentic ambassadors of artisanal gelato in the world with numerous shops open in Europe, America and Asia. The winners of the Artglace competition were also announced. The face-off between Austria and German was won by the Austrian gelato chefs, as they convinced the jury with flavours such as Mozart, Orange Stracciatella and Sacher. The 2nd edition of the “Una Pralina in Gelateria” competition was won by Robbie Pezzuol for best chocolate praline. The next edition has already been scheduled: November 26 - 29, 2023 for a Mig... that keeps getting greener! 33
