Two days dedicated to the art of pizza, with tastings, workshops and contests
For two days, from Saturday, May 28 to Sunday, May 29, Rome will host the fifth edition of la Città della Pizza, an event dedicated to one of the most iconic products of the national culinary tradition: pizza. Organized by Vinòforum, Città della Pizza, or City of Pizza will take place at Parco Tor di Quinto in Via Fornaci di Tor di Quinto, 10.
Sixty of the best pizza-makers of Italy will participate. Every day, guests will be able to taste the various pizzas as they’re continuously taken out of the oven from the houses of Città della Pizza.
With a limited number of guests, those who are interested will have the chance to participate in the Pizza & Champagne sessions. The project will feature two lunches, two dinners, and four special menus. Master pizza-makers will create pizzas with unique toppings and the excellency of the local produce. The combination with Rose champagne Ruinart, the oldest Maison de Champagne, will make every session even more exclusive.
