Our story

It was 1960 when Aldo Carozzi began to market the typical products of Valsassina, first in the village of Ballabio, and then in Pasturo, in the heart of the green mountains of Valsassina. UA place populated by the animals of the forest, which smells of violets and blackberries, with a strong identity given by the dairy artthat is handed down from generation to generation.
For more than 50 years, our family has aimed to tell our story as cheese producers, in love with our origins since childhood. It is a passion that, combined with entrepreneurial intuition, over the years has given life to a wide range of unique cheeses, awarded with prestigious awards.
In 2015 we opened Formaggeria Carozzi, a place designed to meet one by one our customers, dedicating them a point of access to our small big world. UA space not only of resale and food service, but also of experience, in which we plan tastings, events and guided visits to the cheese factory.
