World Pizza Day: time to celebrate!
Every day is perfect for enjoying a good pizza… but today there’s one more reason!
On 7 January 2017, after various attempts over the years, the traditional art of the Neapolitan pizza maker entered the UNESCO Intangible Heritage list. Finally, pizza has been officially recognized as a symbol and expression of a culture that is now intrinsic in the Italian social fabric, and beyond. The date selected to celebrate this great event is January 17, not surprisingly, the day on which Sant’Antonio Abate, the “protector of pizza makers”, is celebrated. And this is how the whole world celebrates World Pizza Day!
In Naples, in the early 1900s, January 17 was also the “day of pizza makers”: the latter took a day off from work, to rest and spend some time with their families. Today, unlike in the past, all the pizza chefs in world take advantage of the world pizza day to rejoice in this recognition with their customers, always looking for an excuse to eat one! Its success is confirmed above all by the prodigious market numbers it reaches every year: the sector boasts a total turnover of 15 billion, and the trend is constantly growing.
