Naples celebrates with pizza

122,000 meals served to more than 1 ml guests in an area of 30,000 sqm. After the 2018 record edition and the New York event, the Napoli Pizza Village is back. Lungomare Caracciolo in Naples hosts one of the largest folk festivals in Europe. Pizza is the protagonist, as an ambassador of Naples and Italy.
From September 13 to 22, from 6 pm to midnight, the village is hosting 50 of the most renowned Italian pizzerias and hundreds of pizza makers coming from all over the world to bake their delicacies. In the gourmet area, internationally famous masters exchange ideas on new trends. Apart from admiring and tasting their creations, visitors can try to prepare their own pizza at Molino Caputo & Casa Rossopomodoro school and in the kids’ area.
Napoli Pizza Village also means fair competition and fun: 600 top players from more than 40 countries are taking part in the World Pizza Tournament, preparing Neapolitan, classical, fried, pan, by-the-metre, seasonal, gluten-free and junior pizzas. A triumph of fragrance and taste, enlivened by shows, music events and entertainment.
