International convention AVPN
The “Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana” (The True Neapolitan Pizza Association) organises, from the 3rd to the 5th of July 2012, at the “Città della Scienza” (Bagnoli), an international convention which represents a huge chance of growth and comparison for AVPN members and sector operators.
The event will be liven up by workshops, seminars on products and ingredients, and of course by meetings between “insiders”. Together with the schedule of the convention, there will be trips to the most interesting places of the city and wine and food testing.
During the event there will take place also the “Olympics of Neapolitan Pizza”, a contest developed on 5 issues (as Olympic rings): Classic Pizza, Fantasy Pizza (innovation of traditions stated by AVPN rules), Artistic Pizza, Fried Pizza and Mastunicola (a circle of dough, lard, extra-virgin oil, basil and pepper to bring out the paste).
The contest will give the leading role to the Real Neapolitan Pizza as thought in Naples, and competitors will move between Margherita, Marinara and any other kind of pizza, still using ingredients not in contrast with Naples gastronomy and traditions.
Awards will be presented to people and to countries: in the competition, indeed, will participate pizza-makers from the whole world and a prize will be given to the nation which will obtain the highest scores in the various fields.
