Gelateria Badiani

In 1979 the Florentine shopkeepers organized a competition in remembrance of the famous architect Bernardo Buontalenti. The Badiani ice-cream shop took part in it and won the competition with an ice-cream flavour called Buontalenti, which was made with vanilla and cream. This is the history of the creation of one among the most famous flavours in the Florentine ice-cream tradition. We suggest you also try in the Badiani ice-cream shop the cremino or the chili chocolate flavour, the “bicchierini dopo-cena” (after-dinner desserts in small glasses), the zuccotto (filled sponge cake) and the little ice-cream pastries.
