Some historians believe that the first ice cream in the Veneto, it was precisely Cadore, mainly thanks to the abundance and quality of raw materials, including milk, cream, forest fruits and a cold climate, which aided in the preservation of ice cream.

The ice cream was prepared in special tubs, frozen with ice and salt, then poured into wooden vats that were isolated with bags which maintained solid until evening. Already in the last century the inhabitants of Cadore, exported their ice cream in many German cities and countries Austro-Hungarian Empire.
