About us - history and tradition

Maurizio Proietti is the Maitre Chocolatier running La Bottega del Cioccolato. His is a story of a passion and of an art, handed down from father to son for more than a century. The story of this family of craftsmen begins in the early 1900s, when Marcello Proietti, Maurizio's father, begins to work as a laboratory assistant to the great Maitre Chocolatier Enrico Cuniberti

Our work

La Bottega del cioccolato invites you to enter its exhibition spaces to discover its colors, the seasonal setting and to savour the aromas of handmade chocolates. Sylvie keeps the Instagram page up-to-date as she and Maurizio melt and decorate new pralines and shapes.
