The goal of The Pizza Makers Registry of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN) is to professionalize, both in Italy and abroad, the profession of Pizza Maker in order to ensure not only the quality of the production process and the products but also the pizzerias.
The Registry was created to protect the image of professional Pizza Makers working in Italy and abroad and, consequently, the true Neapolitan pizza.
Will be able to join the AVPN Registry those pizzamaker who have achieved one of the qualifications covered by this Regulation and / or those who have demonstrated their own experience through workbook and / or curriculum.
Each pizzeria associated with the AVPN and in line with the associative contributions can indicate the generality of the 1st pizzaiolo that will directly enter free of charge the AVPN Registry; any other pizzamaker of the same pizzeria can subscribe to the Register, taking a specific examination with the commission, with a cost of € 80,00 for the first two years and € 30,00 from the 3rd year. For all others, subscribing to the Register is subject to passing the exam and has a cost of € 150,00 including the first 2 years of registration and € 30.00 on departure from the 3rd year.
The AVPN’s Registry has international validity, with the acceptance of applications and of the inscription of the pizzamaker who would like to be part of it abroad.
In countries where the Association is present with its own delegations, special exam sessions could be established, with mixed commissions and always with the presence of a member of the Executive.
