Galup is a name that stands for panettone and colombe made in a certain way that is unique and distinct from other products. The only panettone before Galup was the Milanese style panettone. The flatter panettone with a hazelnut glaze is the invention of Pietro Ferrua, who was born in Langhe - known as Langa in Piedmont - and lived in Pinerolo. It was his idea and his recipe: a delicious and innovative reinterpretation of the culinary traditions of Lombardy. A few years later he introduced another classic recipe from Piedmont - the Galup Colomba. Within a few years, The confectionery was awarded a patent by the royal house. The recipe has been refined over time, but the intrinsic character has remained the same and still conforms to Pietro Ferrua's specifications.
