Dove flying above the 'panitone' cakes made in Italy. The Alemagna confectionary company was founded in Melegnano, by Gioacchino Alemagna (1892 - 1974) in 1921. In 1925 he opened a coffee shop and, in 1933, the famous pastry bar in the Piazza del Duomo in Milan.

The italian chocolate and biscuit company Alemagna was popular during the post-war era. Their delicious sweets were advertised with this white dove swooping over a brown confectionery dove sprinkled with powdered sugar.
