The Barozzi pastry shop in Vignola (Modena) is a historic bakery that is famous for creating the Torta Barozzi, a decadent chocolate cake that has become a symbol of the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy.
The pastry shop was founded in 1885 by Luigi Barozzi and his wife, who started by selling traditional bread and cakes made with local ingredients.
In the 1930s, Eugenio Gollini, a young pastry chef, began working at the bakery and soon developed the recipe for Torta Barozzi, which quickly became a local sensation.
Today, the Barozzi pastry shop is still family-owned and operated, and is considered a cultural landmark in Vignola. It continues to sell a variety of traditional baked goods, including the famous Torta Barozzi, which is shipped to customers around the world.
The shop is also a popular destination for tourists who visit Vignola to sample the town's famous cuisine and learn about its rich culinary history.
