Hope - by Anna Gerasi

The Hope chocolate mould, designed by Anna Gerasi, was inspired by the Kaleidoscope with the idea of reproducing the typical facets of GEN Z, the main theme of the World Chocolate Masters, where Anna Gerasi participated as a competitor. A generation that leaves room for experimentation and curiosity. Always eager to discover novelties from all over the world.

Hope is one of the VIP line praline, for which Anna Gerasi is ambassador together with other master chocolatiers on the international scene.

An entrepreneur with many souls, she runs the historic Piccinelli pastry shop in Brescia together with her brother Gianpaolo.

She has always had an inordinate love for art, a passion that led her to graduate as Master of Art.

Chocolate is her favourite subject, with chocolate she creates and communicates her art.

Anna says it was an inner journey of which she is very satisfied and proud of the result, she loves playing with her limits and being a bit 'reckless'.

"To face such a tough journey you need to have a well-structured team, companies that believe in your ideas and support you all the way."
