"Following the recent decision of UNESCO to inscribe the art of the Neapolitan Pizzaiuolo in its List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco and Dress in Dreams Movie & Costume of Rome have organized a week of events to celebrate Neapolitan Pizza in San Francisco and the Bay Area.

Pizza-making demonstrations, a photo exhibition, panel discussions, and endless pizza tastings at some of the best Neapolitan pizzerias will be featured throughout the week. From Italy, representatives of the Authentic Neapolitan Pizza Association (AVPN) will bring their appreciation and support to all those who strive to strengthen the value of authenticity of one of the most emblematic products of the Made in Italy.

The initiative is brought together with the collaboration of the Consulate General of Italy in San Francisco and the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN) of Naples, Italy, and with the support of Italy’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism (MIBACT).
