Panettone Day 2020

Master Iginio Massari and a team of experts selected the 25 best panettone in Italy, finalists of Panettone Day 2020, now at its 8th edition. Panettone Day was born to promote the value of craftsmanship in our country and the culture of a pastry symbol such as panettone, and to give a message to all professionals in the sector to restart and experiment with new opportunities to enhance that know-how that made Italy famous in the world.
