During the festival Cefalù’s city centre is transformed into the ice cream village.It is possible to walk by the stands of famous ice cream masters and taste their cold masterpieces,especially along Corso Ruggero and the narrow streets which take to the sea. At number 92 of Corso Ruggero there is the Corte delle Stelle and above it there is a terrace where it will be organized a sort of lab,called Dolce Officina dei Gusti;here the masters will find the best ice cream machines which are present on the market. Nearby the Corte there is Cefalù’s Cathedral.
