March 19, 2013 – Enrollments have been received for the first leg of the Gelato World Tour, which will be held in Rome from May 3 to 5.
 
Sixteen gelato artisans will be selected by experts and trade associations. The 16 artisans will compete in Rome, each making one flavor, the best they have to offer. The final standings will be based on the total votes of the public and the professional jury. The top four will have the chance to represent Italy in the Grand Finale of the world’s most delicious Olympics, in September 2014 at Rimini where the top contenders from five continents chosen by the public and experts will battle for the title of World’s Best Gelato Artisan.
 
“The winning artisans from each leg will have created flavors that combine tradition and innovation, bringing out the flavors of the best ingredients,” says Patrizia Cecchi, director of Rimini Fiera’s business unit.
 
Those who are interested in participating in the event can apply here. The deadline is March 31. Visiting www.gelatoworldtour.com for more information.
