An ice cream bar spotted in Via Dante in Milan, Italy.
Gelato; plural: gelati) is the Italian word for ice cream, derived from the Latin word "gel?tus", meaning frozen. In American English this word commonly refers to varieties of ice cream made in a traditional Italian style. Gelato is made with milk, cream, various sugars, and flavourings such as fresh fruit and nut purées.
Gelato is a type of soft ice cream containing a relatively small amount of air. By statute, gelato in Italy must have at least 3.5% butterfat, with no upper limit established.
The sugar content in home-made gelato, as in traditional ice cream, is balanced with the water content to act as an anti-freeze to prevent it from freezing solid. Types of sugar used include sucrose, dextrose, and inverted sugar to control apparent sweetness. Typically, gelato—like any other ice cream—needs a stabilizing base. Egg yolks are used in yellow custard-based gelato flavours, including zabaglione and crème caramel. Non-fat milk solids and other ingredients may also added to thicken and stabilize the mix.

this is a fine daily life picture and of course one that makes me feel like having a gelato :). the man in the foreground busy preparing the ice cream framed within the window is very well utilised in the shot and the open door and the top panel with the double reflections provide equally interesting views.
thanks for sharing and have a nice Sunday.

non si può venire in Italia senza apprezzare il gelato.
Bello questo antico locale, si vede un arredamento in stile accompagnato da un bellissimo lampadario.
Ottimo il tuo scatto, una bella scena con riflessi sui vetri superiori.

Appétissante vitrine et bon effet un peu troublant avec ces reflets, un ensemble intéressant pour une photo originale.

Excellent view to gelati shop. I like the arrangement with combination of view to the shop and the outside reflections.
All well composed in portrait format.
Very well done my friend.

Impossible d'aller en Italie sans gouter aux "Gelati"! Une belle variété de parfum et de jolis reflets d'architecture dans la vitrine. Bien vu!

as a man who has to watch his cholesterol this is a temptation that has its limits unfortunately. Luckily as you get older the sweet tooth cravings lessen. This looks like an amazing ice-cream palace though, not seen parlours in the UK with such opulent chandeliers. Makes for a wonderfully characterful and colourful image. But some of our TE ladies would like a visit here.
Have a peaceful Sunday - B.

this window would work like a magnet on me if I walked in this street, it surely has a mesmerizing effect through your picture. I like very much the tight framing that gives so much emphasis to the attractive gelati, the people and the elegant details that surround them. There's great depth and sharpness, fine and appealing colours. I like very much the intimate atmosphere and the concentrated people inside the shop while the outside world exists only as a subtle glow on the window pane. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

La fameuse crème glacé italienne Gelato, elle est très populaire au Canada. Tu as bien capturé l'action des employés du restaurant. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne soirée.

In what other country would you see a crystal chandelier in a gelataria? That's class for ya. A beautifully composed shot, showing not just the delicious selection of gelati but the sumptuous décor. Ahh this is my type of shop. I hope you partook at least once a day? My dosage was 2 a day (lemon and pistachio) plus a lemon granita...and had to be weaned off them on my return to Oz.

Great weather here hot and sunny, forecast rain tomorrow, good for the garden.
