The first shops have already been set up in Corso Vannucci and the three piazzas that will host this year’s edition of the Eurochocolate Festival. Starting this coming Friday the festival kicks off, with a melee of chocolate crunching and munching (and a little drinking, with hot chocolate) and hundreds of thousands of
tourists during the nine-day event. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, and a whole lot of cocoa! The festival’s location is a nod to Perugia’s sweet past, as it was the (and still is) the home of the Perugina, the world-famous chocolate company that makes the “bacio” sweets. Hopefully Umbra students will have the opportunity to pop out and get some a piece of the chocolate sculptures to help them study for midterms!
