Three months ago, Jorge Cardoso, a confectioner from the Canton of Friborg, finished his Cristiano Ronaldo Swiss Chocolate sculpture. Back then, he said that he hopes that CR7 will soon see his masterpiece. Finally, this story got an epilogue. Moreover, a happy epilogue.
Not only the 120-kilogram sculpture is now in the CR7 Museum, but it also seems that the biggest football star is happy with Cardoso’s work. He said that it was well done. It is such a triumphant moment for Cardoso since he’s a huge Ronaldo fan and an extremely talented chocolate artist.
As you can see, now there is a photo (see above) of Cristiano Ronaldo and his chocolate twin brother.
When a dream comes true
Before the Coronavirus pandemic, Cardoso went to Madeira to bring the statue to the museum. Even then, he already received a lot of positive comments and feedback. Everybody liked Cristiano Ronaldo Swiss Chocolate sculpture.
The sculpture is 187 centimeters tall and it’s almost as big as Ronaldo himself (189 centimeters). However, it weighs approximately 120 kilograms, and Cristiano Ronaldo is much lighter at 84 kilograms
The value of the statue is around 10,000 francs.
What is so special about chocolate?
As we can see, with the help of Swiss chocolate, Jorge Cardoso managed to create a masterpiece sculpture. Of course, it is his effort that counts the most, but Swiss chocolate gets some of that credit as well.
What is so special about Swiss chocolate? Well, we all know that it is the most popular and the most quality chocolate in the entire world. It’s not questionable at all. The same situation is with many other Swiss made products, such as watches, but chocolate is still the most popular by far. People from every part of the world are finding different options to get the Swiss chocolate in their hands. Logically, everybody wants to consume the best possible food. However, when it comes to chocolate, people, especially true chocolate fans, are very dedicated to finding the most delicious chocolate. Fortunately, there is a place where you can find all of them!
Where to get the highest quality Swiss chocolate?

When you see this title, you probably think that it’s some joke. But, believe it or not, it isn’t! Jorge Cardoso, a chief chocolatier at Suard, dedicated a Swiss chocolate sculpture to his idol – Cristiano Ronaldo. However, what is so special about this is that it consists of 120 kilograms of Swiss chocolate!
This week, at the entrance to the Tea-Room Suard in Givisiez, Fribourg, guests have welcomed a life-size Swiss chocolate sculpture by Cristiano Ronaldo. During five years, Cardoso invested 200 hours of work in creating a 1.87 meters tall and 120 kilograms statue! His words explain such hard effort the best: “There were moments when I was almost desperate, but I bit my teeth and finished them.”
Cardoso already has a lot of experience with artistic work with chocolate, and he even became a world champion once. However, this sculpture is entirely on the next level. It is his lifetime masterpiece!
After two weeks, this fantastic sculpture will be shipped to Portugal. First, it will be exhibited in Ovar, Cardoso’s hometown, and then, it will go to Lisbon. Cardoso’s idea is to give it to Cristiano Ronaldo after that so that he can exhibit it in his museum.
In the end, Cardoso hopes that Ronaldo is soon going to be aware of his work: “I would be happy if I could shake his hand or just see him up close.”
We hope that his wish will soon become a reality! He deserved it so much.

“Today, when my homesickness lies so far, far behind me, almost buried under so many other life-experiences, I take pleasure in having undergone this suffering, too. To be sure, the pleasure is not a proud one, for, to be honest, I did not conquer my homesickness. It only left me one day, when it had sucked out my soul like a vampire. But this day shines like an eternal sunshine in my life. And the joyful light of its memory will never pale for me.”
Nostalgia and crime
Schlunegger Heimweh is one of the many extraordinary lifetime projects of Georg Schlunegger and his colleagues, artists from HitMill music production company, Roman Cemenzind and Fred Hermmann. This music project conquers the Swiss music world from the stand.
The essential thing for these artists is creating unique music, music which could play all the ambiguity of life.
That is why they have been experimenting with every sound effect they hear, with various genres they could play, with every text they could write. Their idea is presenting life as it truly is, a life filled with many seemingly opposite sides. According to that idea, they introduce Schluneggers Heimweh as a group of warm and powerful voices, which tends to express through deep lyrics this character of life.
Eleven Impressive voices IN one CD / The Feeling of Home
Georg Schlunegger had been looking all over Switzerland to find perfect voices and unite them in a form of choir. He found deep basses and high tenors from seven cantons to sing more thoughtful kind of folk music. Now, these voices sing very common and strong emotion: the feeling of home (“Heimweh”).
Like every honest artist, Georg has the need to show to people some strong, ambiguous emotion but in his unique nostalgic way. He deliberates love, hope, commitment, sadness, and fear, trying to relief himself and everybody who listen to this music of pessimistic view of life. He does feel nostalgic, emphatic but basically, he wants to affirm your joy of listening to this music, this choir.

This is a great song and performance. The melody is strong and tuneful. Every singer has an attractive vocal tone and puts real feeling into the lyric. The lyric is about a couple who go through the life for decades. In the end, the man has to say goodbye to his dying wife. But above all, they had the full beautiful life together. The song is distinctive and original, and I think it has a high potential to many pleases.

They are founders, but above all, they are very close colleagues with the same purpose/ to create between mainstream and curiosity. They are always much intrigued about creating music in various genres and that promise an idea of the unique quality of music. The complexity of sound and what variety of sound do to mass is something that intrigued them. But importantly, they are creatives for the masses.
HitMill has no fixed methods to make music. Their view is always experimental, and every new project is something challenging for these people. They love to think about the job in that way. And another thing which sets them apart from all others in the music industry is their reliable character. Dozens of platinum and golden records are proof of their seriousness in work.

HitMillrepresents good musicians, good producers, good songwriters and great spirits of potential new and better mainstream. These artists support every inspired and talented character and also provide him good developing music strategies and concepts to advertise their mutually work all around the world.
If you are jazz, pop, rock or reggae musician or singer, and you have some unique potential, HitMill will surely give you a chance to realize and manifest it.
