About The Town of Sassello:
The historic factory that produces the Baratti & Milano Amaretto cookie and other baked delicacies, is located in the famously historic town of Sassello, a gem of a town on the border between Liguria and Piedmont, famously known for the best soft Amaretto cookies in Italy. Sassello, located on the border between Liguria and Piemonte, is in the Ligurian Apennines and about 26 km, roughly 16 miles, from the Mediterranean coast. This small town, or in Italian, commune, played a major role in the production of iron during the ironworks period. The city passed from rule by Genoa, to Sardinia, to finally Savoy just before the unification of Italy in the late 1800s. As the ironworks industry disappeared, the towns focus became that of nut cultivation, farming and confections. The regions are known for having the best quality almonds, chestnuts, walnuts and hazelnuts in the world.
