Pretty simply: the ice cream here is absolutely gobsmacking, Possibly the best I have ever eaten, really world class. Finest ingredients, perfectly made, creative flavours, highest hygienic standards. Very well worth the visit as 10 mins walking from the Train Station.

Simply a Perfect ice cream in Treviso! If you want to get an ice you should try this!
A good and wide choice, and it is bio!
It is difficult to get the choice in front of this selection.

The previous reviews are right, the gelato here is authentic and the service very nice. Would come again when in Treviso. There are many gelato places in Treviso like in any Italian city but this has something more authentic to it than the others.

Seth Godin, è considerato uno dei massimi esperti al mondo di marketing e un acclamatissimo autore americano. Ha un'idea chiara circa i prodotti di successo per il futuro e chi li produce. Credo che la sua descrizione di cosa "abbia valore" si adatti perfettamente al vecchio gelatiere.

Il titolo è : Non imitate!

You don't have to pander
Merely giving the people what they want is a shortcut to banality, mediocrity and invisibility.

The agency that gives its clients exactly what they think they want never deserves to win Agency of the Year, and worse, is rarely seen as the leader in the field, the trusted advisor that is smart enough to know what the client ought to want instead. They certainly can't charge more or hire better team members.

I'm defining pandering as using your perception of your customer's wishes as an excuse to do work you're not proud of.

The public radio station that puts on empty, sensationalist coverage of the current crisis-of-the-year is chasing others down the rabbithole, a chase it can't (and doesn't want to) win. [The excuse is always the same—it's what the listeners want!]

The bookstore that gives customers toys, games and other junk to survive won't long be able to call itself a bookstore.

The restaurant that eagerly serves kids salty, fatty, tasteless junk food because that's all they will eat is inevitably training an entire generation not to eat at restaurants when they grow up.

The architect who proclaims that times are tough and ends up doing nothing but ticky tacky work because it's easy to sell gets the clients he deserves.

The copywriter/editor who trades in meaning for lists, using calculated SEO keyword loading and sensationalism designed to attract the drive-by audience, earns the privilege of doing it again and again, forever.

The reason you don't have to pander is that you're not in a hurry and you don't need everyone to embrace you and your work. When you focus on the weird, passionate, interesting segment of the audience, you can do extraordinary work for a few (and watch it spread) instead of starting from a place of average.

Go ahead and make something for the elites. Not the elites of class or wealth, but the elites of curiosity, passion and taste. Every great thing ever created was created by and for this group.

There's a surprisingly large amount of room at the this end of the market--among those that care enough about what they do to say no, and better yet, to teach the market why they're right.

They earn their niche at the top of the market by leading, not pandering.

This is where the road ends in search of the best gelato in the world, it's hard to imagine you could get any better than this, been there twice in 2010 and 2012, Im planning again a 2h drive to try this gelato very soon. Any flavour you might want and they all taste gorgeous. Compulsory stop if you are in Treviso!
