A panel of technical experts and one made up of members of the public will award a prize to the best flavour during every stage. The first two winners from each stage of the tour will challenge one another in the grand final in Florence.
Twenty-two of Europe’s master gelato makers will enter their own unique flavours in an effort to become the outright winner of the 2016 Gelato Festival.
