Giuliana Maravalle, co-owner and creative vision behind Gelato Giuliana has been following her passions and turning them into success stories since she was 19.
An entrepreneurial veteran for over 30 years, she's owned and operated several enterprises, until "retiring” to focus solely on Caffe Bottega, where Gelato Giuliana was born! Inspired deeply by her native Italian heritage, she brings her love of tradition, beautiful food, simple quality, and artisan craftsmanship to the brand, giving this wonderful gelato its authenticity.

The Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce has been influential for over two centuries in shaping public policy and fostering business growth. No matter how large or small your business, membership in The Chamber gives you an advantage.
Founded in 1794, the Chamber’s original goal was to represent the concerns of 26 New Haven businessmen who united to persuade the federal government to keep the city’s maritime shipping out of the hands of French and British privateers. Their success marked the beginning of an over 200 year tradition of representing the needs of the New Haven business community.
