As usual, the Neapolitan pizza takes the starring role, with a series of events that include a contest for pizza makers, a seminar on true pizza and a course held by Antonio Lo Presti. Among the pizzerias involved in Rio there are "Pappa Jack" and "Capricciosa". And constantly in the shadow of the "Cristo Redentor", the President of AVPN Antonio Pace will deliver the certificate of True Neapolitan Pizza to Pizzeria Baco, the first "true" pizzeria in Brasilia.
And a "debut" is also planned in the next and final stage, Buenos Aires. The delegation will, in fact, have the pleasure of associating to AVPN the first pizzeria in Argentina, which is "Siamo nel forno", present just in the Portena capital.
