Torrone of Cremona was described in banquets dating back to the Roman epoch and was referred to as that “exquisite sweet made from almonds, honey and egg whites.” However its official debut was on 25 October 1441, the day when Bianca Maria Visconti married the condottiere Francesco Sforza in Cremona. On that occasion the sweet was prepared in the shape of the highest tower in the city, the Torrione, or the Torrazzo as it is presently known. Thus the name Torrone, which translates to “big tower.”
