Less than a month to the Convention in Naples. All details to attend it and the scheduled programme
From the 3rd to the 5th of July 2012 at the Città della Scienza.
The countdown has started for the first international convention that the Verace Pizza Napoletana Association has planned in Naples, from the 3rd to the 5th of July 2012, in the beautiful location of the Città della Scienza. Workshops, samplings, tasting workshops, the Pizza Olympics and many other surprises have been planned for these three days, it´ll be an important opportunity for the experts to compare their skills and a unique event for pizza chefs and restaurateurs from around the world. And here are the details for taking part to the international competition and the news on the rich programme of the festival.

The "Pizza Napoletana Olympics" will be divided into five disciplines: Classic Pizza (following the old tradition), Fantasy Pizza (the innovation of tradition according to the AVPN regulations), Artistic Pizza, Fried Pizza and Mastunicola (a disk of dough, lard or extra-virgin olive oil, basil, pepper to season the dough). The protagonist of the competition, therefore, will be the Real Neapolitan Pizza, as it is meant by the Neapolitans. The competitors will deal with marinara and margherita pizzas and also with other types of pizzas, by using ingredients that are not in conflict with the Neapolitan gastronomy´s rules. And for the first time the competition will start from the preparation of the dough made by hand.
Both individual participants and countries will be awarded. The nation that eventually will get the highest score in the various disciplines will win the Olympics.
To enter the contest you must send the form to: segreteriaolimpiadi@pizzanapoletana.net or by fax at 081 4201205.
