|The workers in 1600|
|In the XVII century in Tuscany from the new world arrives ” chocolate” the food of the gods…sublime food that in a very short times captures the courts of Florence and Lucca. The workers of the Buonvisi, wanting to narrate and illustrate the story of chocolate and its use inside the noble Lucchesi families, propose an antique chocolate factory where they produce chocolate as in 1600’s demonstrating antique recepies, including the famous “chocolate with jasmine” that was Cosimo III Dei Medici and the whole of Tuscany’s favorite, and also shows how a noble woman of the Marchesi of Buonviso would offer it for tasting in her dinning rooms. The multi epoch group of the workers of Buonvisi not only represent the art of making chocolate as was in that time, but also show the normal every day life of a noble family during feasts in the villas in that time period and organize buffets and weddings in the style of the first renaissance.|
