The perfect accompaniment to Pidapipo’s gelato, the ‘Lovers Profiteroles’ take the form of an Italian choux pastry ball, topped with vanilla bean gelato, and drizzled with a hot serving of the brand’s signature chocolate sauce.

Adding to the immersive retail experience, for the duration of our month of love, the Laboratorio’s defining light installation will be set to a vibrant red, soaking the interiors and reflecting out onto the street in an aesthetic affirmation of all things love.
