Description: Perugina, known world-wide for its iconic Baci line and its commitment to the art of creating only the highest quality confections, announces the continuation of its “Baci Perugina Loves New York” campaign, with special shopping events and activities, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The program features alliances with Italian brands throughout the city, representing a variety of cultural touchpoints including food, fashion, culture and design, who will be hosting Baci tastings and offering complimentary gifts from Perugina.
“As a confectionery brand synonymous with love and romance, we have a strong appreciation for the expression of this sentiment, especially at Valentine’s Day,” says Federico Giorgio Marrano, Perugina Export Manager – U.S. “Not only does Baci, mean “kisses” in Italian, but a real love story lies at the heart of its original Baci creation. Today, Baci are still hand-crafted in the heart of Italy, near the historic home of St. Valentine, just as they have been for the past 90 years.”
