In 1860 Sassello, a small town in the heart of Liguria, became the birthplace of a refined and exquisite delicacy: Amaretti Virginia. The pastry shop, which offered this typical Italian specialty, soon became the favorite meeting place for locals and guests. Soon there were so many visitors that the square where the shop was located was called “Piazza degli Amaretti Virginia”. The scent of the delicious almond dough and the unique, soft texture of the Amarettini also attracts a lot of recognition at international food fairs. Amaretti Virginia has therefore received many awards for outstanding confectionary art, making it one of the best-known Italian pastry manufacturers.
