Rome is Italy's ice cream capital, according to a recent report in "Il Messaggero" newspaper, with an average 15 kilograms consumed per person last year. Those cones and cups added up to an estimated 650 million for the 1,457 makers of ice cream in Rome province. Naples came second in the table, with an average consumption of 13 kilograms per head, followed by Florence, Milan and Turin. Ice cream makers plan to introduce a special "tricolore" concoction in July to mark Italy's assumption of the presidency of the European Union, with fior di panna and candied red and green cherries to represent the colours of the national flag.
