In 1990, Cecilia Tessieri decided to dedicate herself to an extraordinary adventure which gave her the opportunity to discover all of the precious secrets of chocolate.
Her business began making pralines in a small workshop of only 45 square meters with just one employee. In the beginning, Cecilia recalls how the chocolate was purchased elsewhere, therefore, what she was producing was not all made by her hands.
During this time Cecilia was driven to search for the ultimate perfection in hand made chocolates, sending her inquest of the best cocoa beans possible. Her exploration took her to far off places, places where they cultivate cocoa varieties that have retained the aromatic character of the territory to which they belong.
Amedei has since discovered and exploited the most remote places on the planet, finding the rarest of cocoa beans, precious and aromatic, with the aim of later turning them into exquisite creations.
After seven years of hard work and devotion, the first chocolate bars carrying the name "Amedei" became available to consumers in 1998 turning Cecilia Tessieri's dream into a reality. She owes great thanks to her family for their support, including her maternal grandmother to whom she gave particular merit in this adventure by using her surname Amedei.
