The name, a mispronounced word in Vernazzan dialect, which is
heavily accented on the "i" comes from the nickname of the first
proprietor who opened the gelateria in 1968 with continued success
in the following years.
Sonia and her brother, Francesco took over the business 10 years ago
maintaining the same high quality gelato and pastry production. The
best examples of this tradition can be found in the typical Torta
Stalžn with it's creamy chocolate and cream base and the famous
PacciŁgu gelato. Today, Gelateria Stalžn, 40 years in
business is the oldest gelateria - bakery in Vernazza.
