To share his love of the tastes of Italy with the world. Ugo wanted to create something that no one would be able to resist. And he wanted to do it better than anyone. Paciugo is the realization of his lifelong passion.

Ugo’s vision of making and serving Paciugo, the world’s finest gelato, had been fulfilled.
