Italian TV channel RaiTre invited Dario Loison to participate in Geo, a popular show hosted by Sveva Sagramola and Emanuele Biggi. The episode that will air on April 13 at 16.40 will focus on the celebration of Easter 2017.


During the filming, the studios at Via Teulada were quite rightly enveloped by the delicious fragrances from samples of Colomba, Focaccia and Panettone presented by the bursting personality of Dario Loison, in an episode dedicated to chocolate and bakery.


On April 13, Dario Loison and the hosts will illustrate the history of bread making, talking about old-fashioned starter dough, which is the result of the natural fermentation of flour and water. This dough yields the fresh yeast that is used daily in several different productions. Loison uses a certified production process: it takes 72 hours of patient work to make sweet breads. Making bread and leavened cakes, such as Panettone, Focaccia and Colomba, requires intense labor, especially if one wants to follow tradition and to use a number of various ingredients to sweeten the dough.


Loison Pasticceri is an artisanal company established in Costabissara, on the outskirts of Vicenza, by grandpa Tranquillo. He opened his small bread bakery in 1938 and passed his passion on to his son Alessandro first, and then to his grandson Dario. It was the latter who, in the 1990s, revolutionized the concept of artisanal Panettone. He introduced the use of the starter dough and enriched the sweet yeast breads with ingredients from Slow Food Presidia, such as Late Mandarin from Ciaculli and Mananara Vanilla from Madagascar.


Between a close-up and a zoom-out, Geo’s cameras will give us a sweet view into Dario Loison's spectacular creations, including his Magnum versions ranging in size from 2 to 10 kilos. These big formats produced by Loison are really amazing!


So, tune in on TV channel RaiTre on April 13 at 4:40 pm to discover the secrets of bread making and the sweet taste of Made in Loison products!
