Love luxurious sweet treats? Well, Dolce & Gabbana and Fiasconaro have something that you may want to keep an eye out for. The Italian luxury fashion house and Milanese confectionery Fiasconaro have partnered up to produce the Colomba, a Sicilian specialty pastry.

This is not the first time Dolce & Gabbana and Fiasconaro have come together. They previously collaborated on the traditional and beloved Milanese panettone. Like that delicious partnership, the Colomba represents the love and pride both brands have for traditional artisanal manufacturing and homemade Italian treats.

A Taste Of Milanese Confectionary

Presenting three new flavours, the Colomba shares the rich heritage of well-refined Italian craftsmanship with the rest of the world. A traditional pastry that represents peace and rebirth, Dolce & Gabbana and Fiasconaro have produced variations that are packaged exclusively in their own unique packaging.

The Italian confectionery has been made using traditional recipes. A natural leavening ensures incomparable lightness and fragrance. The ingredients used are selected with scrupulous care among the excellences of the territory. A handmade process in every single phase, from the dough to baking, it pays tribute to the pastry tradition of the Bel Paese (beautiful country).

Sicilian-inspired tins

Promoting beauty and craftsmanship, each pastry comes in its own stunning Dolce & Gabbana tin box. It features decorated ornaments by Sicilian artists and is inspired by the blue and white majolica of the island. The tins also help preserve the intense aroma of these sweet creations, conjuring up the intense memory of the “Blu Mediterraneo” and the freshness of a sea breeze.

A Truly Delicious Italian Story

The Colomba by Dolce & Gabbana and Fiasconaro celebrates excellence, knowledge, and passion for quality food. It is an unconditional love, shared by two realities, one that celebrates artisanal craftsmanship of Italian confectionery.
