Pasticceria Pirona

Pasticceria Pirona

Dal 1900

The brainchild of Alberto Pirona, who dispensed jams, fine desserts, preserved fruit, sugar ‘galanterie’, pastries and biscuits – but also
wines and spirits, which were much appreciated by James Joyce as he struggled to write his Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.
Frequented by literati and artists, including the composer Antonio Smareglia, who lived next door, it became a highly popular institution, holding high the great pastry-making tradition of presnitz, pinza, putizza, fave triestine and marzipan. Showcases, furnishings and scripts in the linear Liberty style of the early twentieth century.
