Almond sweets

The almondprecious seed rich in nutritious properties.

It is born and grows in our land, cared for by loving hands, and then ends up on Italian and world tables.

Its flavour, sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter, is particularly exalted in our confectionery preparations.

We offer a wide range of products, each with its own flavour and special features.

Such as Bocconotto, one of our Patisserie‘s flagship sweets.

But the greatest almond treasure that you can find in our Pastry Shop is Pan del Casalea soft dome of almond and honey covered with toasted almond granules, prepared without flour to enhance the taste of the characteristic Apulian seed.

It’s a sweet that lives in the hearts of giovinazzesi and takes its name from the ancient Casale di Corsignano, where tradition has it that the icon of the Madonna di Corsignano, the patron saint of Giovinazzo, was found. 

Pan del Casale is par excellence the symbol and celebration of the confectionery history of our town.

Sasanelli are almond cakes whose unmistakable aroma perfectly represents the arrival of Autumn.

Traditionally linked in the giovinazzese tradition to the Feast of the Dead, Pasticceria Giotti’s Sasanelli are made from toasted almonds, vincotto, flour, a little chocolate and various flavourings such as cinnamon, cloves, orange, lemon and mandarin.

All our recipes are the result of a centuries-old local tradition, jealously guarded and cared for by our predecessors, and then handed down to us intact with their flavours. Revisited by the new generation that respects their history and secrets, our desserts are the symbol of the past that joins the future, in a dance of timeless tastes and emotions.
