We arrived in Rome, for the first time for the Italian final, thanks to the will of Roma Capitale and of Alessandro Onorato, Councillor for Major Events, Sport, Tourism and Fashion, who first of all believed in the tourist boost that pizza and the world of food and wine in general can give to the Capital. It has been a non-stop year, because now we are waiting for the grand finale at the Palazzo Reale in Naples on 13 September, to discover the 100 best pizzerias in the world.”
