Artico ice cream parlour was born in March 2012, in Milan, Isola, from the idea and the union of three families, Poloni, Fioretti and Matrone. Already linked by commercial relationships and friendship, they decide to undertake this path together, combining their respective skills, specifically, technical, economic and architectural.
Based on the strength of our experience as excellent master ice-cream makers, we are continually researching and experimenting with new balances between aromas and flavours, to transform tradition into art and offer you a unique experience every day.
Artico represents the new concept of artisan ice cream. We guarantee the highest-quality raw materials and carefully select all the ingredients for our ice cream, which is always fresh, natural and genuine because it’s free of colourings, hydrogenated fats and synthetic flavourings. With passion and commitment, every day we set ourselves the goal of “creating” excellent ice cream.
Arctic ice cream school courses provide a solid foundation for producing good, healthy ice cream, in compliance with the rules and craftsmanship, as well as basic management and food safety knowledge. Each course has a maximum of eight students and are divided into three categories: Basic Course, Advanced Course and Professional Course.
Our courses offer highly qualified training for anyone who wants to become an ice-cream maker and to start up their own business with competence and passion. Our master Maurizio Poloni, an artisan ice-cream maker since 1981, carries out the technical and practical training alongside a team of teachers and assistants. The Basic Course in ice-cream making consists of a training course of 5 lessons, each 5 hours long, from Monday to Friday. The course is aimed at aspiring ice-cream makers who want to acquire the basic techniques for making traditional Italian-style ice-cream.
