For this Italy photo of the week, here’s a taste of the chocolate festival I attended over the weekend:
CioccolaTÒ is Turin’s chocolate festival, and I visited on its last day this year. It was a perfectly gorgeous summer-like day, which may not have been ideal for a festival dedicated to something that can melt, but that didn’t seem to bother the vendors. Instead, the air smelled of chocolate and everyone was riding a sugar high. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday. The theme of the day (each day of the festival had a theme) was “Wine & Spirits,” so many of the vendors had liquor-related chocolate displays, including this one – you can see the bottles of liquor next to the brightly-wrapped chocolates.
