Perugina, known world-wide for its iconic Baci line and its commitment to the art of creating only the highest quality confections, announces the continuation of its “Baci Perugina Loves New York” campaign, with special shopping events and activities, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The program features alliances with Italian brands throughout the city, representing a variety of cultural touchpoints including food, fashion, culture and design, who will be hosting Baci tastings and offering complimentary gifts from Perugina.
The Perugina story is ripe with legend, tradition and romance.
