Italy celebrates World Pizza Day

Events taking place worldwide

(ANSA) - ROME, JAN 17 - Italy on Monday was leading the celebrations of one of its most popular culinary creations on World Pizza Day.
    The multitude of events and initiatives include a 24-hour 'marathon' live on Facebook and Instagram organized by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN - Real Neapolitan Pizza Association) involving 15 countries and 12 different languages.
    This features a series of pizza 'master classes' and a ceremony for journalists who have been outstanding at promoting the 'culture of pizza'.
    Farmers' association Coldiretti, meanwhile, said that Italy's 'pizzerie' restaurants lost around 2.5 billion euros in earnings in 2021 with respect to the pre-pandemic period due to the impact of COVID restrictions and lower numbers of foreign tourists. (ANSA).
