Within the rich program of event s here i s the stage where every 2 years the ialian ice sculpting competition happen “ Gelato d’Oro”. This is part of the selections witch will form the italian team for the world Ice cream Championship.

There are 4 categories :

I applied for the ice sculpting challenge.

You have i block of ice : 100x 50x 25 cm.You can use all pawer tools you need : chainsaw, grinder , chisels, etc: and you have to be finished in 3 hours.
I did practice  a lot on my piece so i could be prepared for that challenging live show.

My piece’s title is : the couple and represent how within the couple sometimes the view are upside-down.
Well I won the 1st price and i got into the italian team for the next Challenge of the world competition in 2020.
I received a lots of attention also as being one of the first female ice carving in this fields.
Truly it is mainly a matter of male jobs.

I was amazed na d proud of being part of this team.I saw extremely hight professionally. people whom choose to research for the best ingredients, try and experiment.
I learned from them to fully dedicate with passion on your job.
