The Master Gelato Maker

Creativity and tradition made by hand

The sweet delights offered daily in Don Nino shops come from the talented, five-time champion Italian Gelato Master Francesco Mastroianni whose passion and simplicity is evident in the unique flavors of a Don Nino gelato.

Five-time Italian Gelato Champion, along with countless other national and international awards have earned Gelato Master Francesco Mastroianni the position of the World’s Ambassador of Gelato.
His work certainly has not gone unnoticed and continues to win the support of followers across the globe. His passion for gelato making was cultivated in childhood, inherited from his father and grandfather who were also renowned gelato makers.

Master Mastroianni shows his talent in his interpretation of gelato flavors such as “Fichi della Piana” (first prize winner at SIGEP 2001) and “Cuor di Brontolo” (winner of the World Gelato Championship). These are just a few examples of his ability to capture the essence and flavors of only the finest of local ingredients, winning over the public’s taste buds.

Francesco Mastroianni is the creative soul of Don Nino whose passion guides the gelato laboratories and the Master Confectioners who see out these unique ideas.
