Take as an example these two displays viewed this past weekend in Bologna.
We had gingerbread houses when I was a kid but these one's fashioned at Colazione da Bianca beat them hands down. Ours were very Hansel and Gretel country cottage - their's are the elegant Palazzi around their shop on Via San Stefano. How Italian is that?
Truffles - or rather the packaging for truffles - feature prominently in this display for dolci of a different sort. It took a minute or two to figure out what these mannequins had on their heads.
The silver and gold boxes, wrapping and trays for the delicious chocolaty delights that fill the confectioneries here year round but especially at Christmas make for interesting headgear.
