A packed and ecstatic Arsenale della Repubblica was the venue yesterday for the first presentation of the book "Una dolce storia dal 1830," the work published by Italian Gourmet, which tells the story of the Pansa family and the development of their artisanal confectionery business that has been exalting the flavors of the Amalfi Coast all over the world for nearly 200 years with its sweet delights. Journalists Antonella Provetti and Valeria Maffei of Italian Gourmet oversaw the writing of the work and coordinated the evening, which was enriched by speeches from the mayor of Amalfi, Daniele Milano; Prof. Giuseppe Gargano, director of the Amalfi Culture and History Center, who historically framed the Pansa family; and Bonaventura Esposito, cicerone of the history and spirit of the Arsenal. Guest of honor for the evening was the master of Haute Pastry Iginio Massari, who signed the preface to the work.
"A history of five generations of pastry chefs like that of the Pansa family is more unique than rare," said maestro Massari, praising the path of brothers Nicola and Andrea Pansa, who have been able to carry on the family business, always knowing how to innovate and exalting Pasticceria Pansa and the Amalfi Coast more and more in the world, to the point of winning the World Pastry Stars in 2019 and becoming members of Apei - Pastry Ambassadors of Italian Excellence - in 2022.
A crowd of people, including family, friends, pastry chefs, Apei's Campania ambassadors, institutions, journalists and industry experts gathered around the Pansa brothers, who wanted to dedicate the evening to their family, reserving an emotional closing moment for their mother and father. Nicola and Andrea Pansa wanted all the employees of the bakery next to them in the evening's finale, to whom they expressed deep gratitude. At the conclusion of the evening to the sound of jazz music, the speakers were able to taste the typical pastries of Pasticceria Pansa in the charming atmosphere of the Arsenal.
"We wanted the first presentation of our book to be held here in Amalfi, because in our land and among our people we want to celebrate this milestone: the book that tells the nearly 200-year history of our family, inextricably linked to the
Amalfi Coast, whose riches and typical flavors we celebrate every day with our work, starting with lemons," the Pansa brothers said.
The book "A Sweet History since 1830" is available at Pasticceria Pansa and on our e-commerce, in several bookstores and physical and online outlets.
