December 4th – 8th over 70 chocolatiers descended on Mostra d’Oltremare in Naples Fuorigrotta district for Showcolate. Bringing the fine art of fine chocolate, they put the most decadent art medium in the world on full display. There were dark chocolates, white chocolates and milk chocolates. Sweet, semisweet, and bittersweet chocolates. Hard chocolates, soft chocolates, filled and flavored chocolates. And let us not forget, hot chocolate and chocolate liqueurs. Malleable, moldable and meltable, chocolate was flowing from fountains and formed it into virtually every shape imaginable, from chocolate trees and Santas to skeletons and skulls.
A mouth-watering display sure to please even the most discerning chocolate palates, here are just a few pictures to make your mouth water!
