Frutta di Martorana

Sugar, almond and fantasy

Born, according to legend, from the ingenuity and creativity of the nuns of the Martorana Monastery in Palermo, this form of artistic pastry soon spread throughout Sicily. Pride and pride of the Sicilian pastry tradition, Martorana fruit (also called Pasta reale) perfectly embodies the baroque and sumptuous character of the Sicilian confectionery tradition. Created by the skilled hands of Massimo Cannavò, our Martorana fruit stands out for the accuracy of the details and the refined goodness of the Pasta reale.

Pasta di Mandorla

Simple and delicious

Massimo Cannavò’s almond pastries are the quintessence of Sicilian pastry, a concentrate of Sicily and tradition with a sprinkling of icing sugar. Light and soft on the palate, the almond paste contains all the sweetness and passion of a land that always surprises.

“Sicilian pastry is full of contaminations and reworkings, balances and excesses. Each taste, each creation, is the perfect combination between the intense taste of the flavors of my land and the natural manifestation of its elegance.”
