Antica Dolceria Bonaiuto - Modica - Ragusa - Sicily
The Oldest Chocolate Factory in Sicily
“There’s something delicious about the past”. This is no mere promotional claim. It’s an everyday working philosophy in a family workshop that resounds with the time-honoured rhythms of traditional chocolate making. In Modica, Pierpaolo Ruta represents the sixth generation of a famous dynasty of “ciucculatari”, or chocolate makers. Like his father and grandfather before him, he treasures the best of the past. The shop was founded in 1880. . The secret of such success? Never giving in to industrialization.
