Overview

Pepino has a very central position being in the delightful piazza Carignano right in front of the Palazzo dei Guarini (one of the most significant pieces of 17th Century Italian history). It was once a shop belonging to a Neapolitan man named Domenico Pepino. Towards the end of the 19th century he introduced Turin to the wonders of home-made ice-cream. Moreover this shop boasts the invention of the "pinguino" in 1937. This was the famous "passeggiata" ice cream which was inserted onto a wooden stick. As in the past it is still a reference point for the audiences of the neighboring Teatro Carignano.
