About Me


We are all apprentices in a profession where you never become a master

(Ernest Hemingway)

I met Ciro as a gelato customer. As a trainer and professional in Chocolate Academy. The availability and generosity in clearly explaining the techniques, outside the logic of tricks or ‘secrets’. Curiosity in experimenting to see what happens outside the box, allowing yourself to try and even make mistakes to understand and learn. Endowments as rare as they are precious.

“We started our journey in the world of ice cream with Ciro in 2016, taking courses on the management of an ice cream shop and the production of gelato and related products (cakes, cones, sticks, etc).
Armed with a dream and determination, we decided to leave for Spain with the aim of opening a successful gelateria and, after 3 years, we achieved our goal.
There is still a long way to go for us, but thanks to Ciro’s professional help, always ready to help us with his advice, we will be ready to achieve many other goals! “

“The professionalism of Ciro is unquestionable because he is very prepared on the topics he deals with, he is a ‘strict’ teacher because he knows he can get the best results from his students by urging them to go further (his motto is ‘Either you train or you stop’) but above all in all that he does he uses a secret ingredient which, today, is indispensable: his Heart”

I have known Ciro for several years, and I appreciate the determination with which he has built his career as a “trainer”. His basic Gelato course has always been engaging for our boys in the Academy. The passion for the teaching art and the extreme ease with which he communicates distinguishes Ciro and places him among one of the most esteemed professionals.
