Did you know that a humble Sicilian fisherman named Francesco Procopio Cutò became one of the most influential makers and marketers of Italian gelato?! His grandfather, Francesco, built gelatiere machines part-time and left his inventions to Procopio, who tinkered with them and made improvements. Procopio developed a machine that could produce gelato in large quantities and decided to promote his new product. He left Sicily, went to mainland Italy, and then traveled on to France, popularizing his creations along the way! 🍨💛 // #FunFactFriday #AlanaInVenice
