Founded in 2019, the Gelato Festival World Ranking is a permanent world standing updated every year that defines the ranking of the best artisanal gelato artisans worldwide. It is an international project conceived in conjunction with the event's 10th anniversary. The Gelato Festival World Ranking includes the gelato artisans who have participated in the Gelato Festival in the last 10 years, as well as all those who took part in the Gelato World Tour, a partner of the event, and those who are continuing their efforts to compete for a place in the final Gelato Festival World Masters© 2021, the main international individual competition: a community that in the first year of ranking contributes to create a "Top40" of absolute excellence. With each event the gelato artisans earn scores that determine the world standings, aimed at achieving the goal of mapping the over 100,000 gelato shops situated around the world. Furthermore, those who reach a particularly high score will see it translated into "crowns", from one to a maximum of five.

FAQs

  • + WHAT IS THE GELATO FESTIVAL WORLD RANKING

    It is a permanent world ranking, updated every year, which defines the standings of the best artisanal gelato artisans worldwide. It is an international project launched concurrently with the 10th anniversary of the event first held in Florence in 2010 and that has become a worldwide point of reference for the industry.

  • + WHICH GELATO CHEFS ARE INCLUDED IN THE RANKING

    The Gelato Festival World Ranking involves all gelato chefs who have won at least one stage of the Gelato Festival (including victories with the popular and technical juries) and those who have participated in at least one event linked to the Gelato Festival from 2018 onwards. It also includes gelato artisans who took part in the Gelato World Tour in the past, as well as those who are continuing to compete to earn a spot in the final of the Gelato Festival World Masters 2021.

  • + HOW POINTS ARE EARNED FOR THE GELATO FESTIVAL WORLD RANKING

    Points for inclusion in the Gelato Festival World Ranking are earned with participation and placement at any Gelato Festival event (Europe, USA, Japan) from 2018 onwards, including the national and/or continental finals, as well as victory and placement in at least one stage of the Gelato Festival from 2011 onwards. From 2019 also participation in a Gelato Festival Challenge will give scores.

  • + WHAT DOES NOT EARN POINTS FOR THE GELATO FESTIVAL WORLD RANKING

    Points for the Gelato Festival World Ranking were not earned by participation in a Challenge before 2018 or the mere participation in a stage of the Gelato Festival before 2018. Points are also not awarded for placement on the podium in editions where the second and third places did not receive awards.

  • + HOW TO CALCULATE THE POINTS FOR THE GELATO FESTIVAL WORLD RANKING

    The points system is based on a victory of a stage of the Gelato Festival, which is worth 36 points. Participation and placement in each event are worth fractions or multiples of this index.

    ·      Attendance: 2
    ·      High ranking: 4
    ·      Gela-to-go: 6
    ·      Kids jury: 6
    ·      Technical jury: 12
    ·      Popular jury: 12
    ·      3rd place: 18
    ·      2nd place: 24
    ·      1st place: 36

    The other events assign points based on some coefficients:

    ·      Gelato Festival Challenge since 2018: multiply per 0,25 the score of Gelato Festival stage
    ·      Approved Event since 2018: multiply per 0,25 the score of Gelato Festival stage
    ·      Carpigiani Day: multiply per 1.50 the score of Gelato Festival stage
    ·     Finals: multiply per 2 the score of Gelato Festival stage
    ·      Special events: multiply per 3 the score of Gelato Festival stage
    ·      Final of Gelato Festival World Masters: multiply per 4 the score of Gelato Festival stage

  • + WHAT ARE "CROWNS”

    Those who achieve a particularly high score will see it translated into "crowns" – a symbol of the success achieved in the standings, along the lines of the triumphal crown used in classical mythology to symbolise wisdom and glory – from one to a maximum of five. They are assigned according to brackets:

    ·      1 crown: 72 to 108 points
    ·      2 crowns: 109 to 180 points
    ·      3 crowns: 181 to 252 points
    ·      4 crowns: 253 to 360 points
    ·      5 crowns: more than 361 points

  • + SUMMING OF POINTS FOR THE GELATO FESTIVAL WORLD RANKING

    In principle the points relative to the placements earned by gelato artisans (e.g. technical jury + popular jury) are summed, but not those deriving from participation (e.g. participation + high ranking).

    The points of the Kids Jury and Gela-to-go are added to the positions earned since their value does not affect the final ranking of stage winners.

    The scores of the podium and juries (technical and popular) are not added to those obtained for participation and high ranking because they are already included in the final placement.

    The results of the podium are not added to those of the individual juries (technical and popular) because the winners of the jury scores is determined by being the first in the standings among those who are not already on the podium. In other words, the winners of the popular and technical juries is the gelato artisan with the highest standing among those who are not already on the podium.

  • + CAN I LOSE POINTS?

    Yes, not participating in at least one event in more than two years results in the lost of two points at the end of the second year of inactivity.

  • + ARE MY POINTS BOUND TO A SINGLE FLAVOUR?

    Not necessarily: there are some events – like the Gelato Festival World Masters – that require the gelato artisan to compete with the same flavour he or she won with at the Gelato Festival, but beyond these specific cases a gelato artisan can earn points by competing in different years with different flavours.

  • + IS THE RANKING UPDATED AFTER EVERY COMPETITION?

    No, since it is an annual ranking it will be updated every year at Sigep. At that time it will be possible to see who's up, who's down, who's earned points or lost points and/or crowns.
