“Italian cuisine symbolises tradition, the finest ingredients and creativity. It also encompasses innovation, well-being and sustainability.

Additionally, the pizzaiuolo napoletano (the art of the Neapolitan pizza-making) is a world-renowned dish that has been given a place Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. The 6th Italian Cuisine Week is thus an important annual event for the people of Italy which is hosted worldwide to promote Italy’ s unique culture and tradition, as well as support the products and produce from Italy,” shares H.E. Mr. Lorenzo Galanti, Ambassador of Italy to Thailand.
