The Neapolitan sfogliatella and pastiera are among the best-known Scaturchio specialties. Nevertheless, the ‘Babà Vesuvius’ is the product that has made this patisserie so famous. It was made on the occasion of the G7, in 1994, and it was aimed at showing the Neapolitan haute patisserie art to the most important people on earth.

In addition, many important people, such as RAI (the Italian state broadcaster) and the Holy See, have also chosen Scaturchio in order to have delicacies to be prepared. Indeed, it can be considered as the symbol of the Neapolitan patisserie.
