Perfect as a gift

Buttery, crumbly and sweet


La Fugascina is a typical sweet biscuit traditionally baked in the ovens of Mergozzo (VB) found on the shores in Northern Piedmont's lakes.

Don Ernesto Colli, a village priest, writes in his History of Mergozzo (1935) that no holiday celebration is more eagerly awaited by the “Focolanti del Sasso” (a small local community) than St. Elisabeth’s Day, which falls on the first Sunday following July 2nd. In the week preceding the festivities, every member of the community is kept busy decorating the house fronts, and the communal wood-burning oven bakes trays full of mouth-watering sweet fugascina all day long. Every family is entitled to two whole Fugascina to complete the day’s glorious banquet. No guest or relative could go back home without at least a handful of the special St. Elisabeth’s Day biscuits to take with them.

“Al Vecchio Fornaio Pasticcere”, the town’s bakery and confectionary shop, has managed to keep this tradition alive by preserving the old recipe. They offer, La Fugascina always freshly baked, whose buttery goodness reflects the history, celebration, and hospitality of Mergozzo.
