Who we are
Our story began sixty years ago, in the heart of Tuscany.
Everything started when, in a very small village up on the hills, Leonardo bought a bakery and started baking bread, schiacciata a typical tuscany flat bread and biscuits. Leonardo then followed three simple rules: using traditional recipes, using only and exclusively genuine raw materials, and at last following his own insights to make the products of his workshop excellent. That is why his bakery became a very unique place, which gathered people not only to buy bread but also all the products of fine bakery wares.
But among all, his greatest invention stood out: the cantucci with chocolate. His products have always been simple, delicious, handmade, typical flavors of Tuscany’s tradition and culture.
Today, sixty years later, in the heart
of Florence, in an ancient bakery existing
since 1900, in the lovely neighborhood
of Sant’Ambrogio, a place of Florentine traders and artisans, the son Marco took
over the bakery to make it one of a kind:
in our open view laboratory we try to revive flavors of the past, respecting genuineness and the tradition which distinguishes us, proposing innovative and refined combinations.
The scent of bread of the “schiacciata”
and freshly daily baked cantucci fills
the streets of the center, recalling tourists and lovers of good food.
Here everything is done by hand,
with love and commitment, only mother yeast is being used as well as refined flavors and selected ingredients of very high quality. We are proud of our roots, heirs proud of a great craft culture, which we are committed to passing on and spread all over the world.
From the beginning of 2022 we opened a new production laboratory in Rignano sull'Arno (Fi) and in December 2022 we opened a Boutique of exclusive Leonardo products, in Via Porta Rossa 14r, in Florence.
