Grand Prix GELATISSIMO, the popular gelato competition, is being held for the third time

The best gelato makers will again compete against one another at GELATISSIMO 2020. Their task: to produce the best gelato in the hazelnut, yoghurt and strawberry flavours on the first three days of the competition. An expert jury will then select the winner on each day. The winners will receive a brand-new Vespa and will qualify for the grand finale.

The champion of the Grand Prix GELATISSIMO will be determined during the grand finale on the fourth day of the trade fair: the finalists from the previous three days will provide a live demonstration of their skill during the production of mango gelato. The expert jury will then select the overall winner and hand over the coveted trophy, the Coppa GELATISSIMO.

An additional gelato competition, the "Intercoppa", will be staged for the first time in 2020 on the last day of the trade fair. The three finalists in the Grand Prix GELATISSIMO 2020 will compete here against the Grand Prix finalists from the two previous years in the category "beer gelato". The best gelato maker will not only be able to enjoy a proper litre of beer afterwards, but will also win a Caribbean cruise!
