Panettoni by Giovanni Cova & Co. pay homage to masters of music

This year, historical Milanese fine pastry shop Giovanni Cova & Co. is dedicating its Christmas specialties to Gioacchino Rossini’s works, paying homage to the composer on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of his death.

The shop’s holiday delicacies will be wrapped in special illustrated paper: an initiative carried out in collaboration with Archivio Storico Ricordi, which preserves the works created by great masters of melodrama and promotes Italy’s musical heritage in the world.

“Pandori” and “panettoni” prepared according to tradition will be “dressed up” in images taken from the poster for Puccini’s “Madam Butterfly”; special treats such as Grancioccolato® will be packaged in handwritten scores by Rossini; and the libretto to Mascagni’s “Iris” will enhance the coveted Pistachio Panettone.

Giovanni Cova & Co. thus furthers its research and experience in Christmas specialties, continuing in its historical tradition. Indeed, in 1930 this was the cradle of the legendary “Panettun de Milan”, a gem of Milan’s culinary art, beloved in the Lombard city and all over the world. This year, the echo of great music will make it taste even sweeter.
