Italy puts forward the traditional art of pizza-making for the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List

The Italian National Commission for UNESCO unanimously voted to submit the Art of Naples “Pizzaiuoli” for inclusion in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List on Friday.

The decision reaffirms the central role of nutrition-related matters in the framework of Italy’s cultural, economic, and innovation promotion abroad, which has been spurred by the EXPO 2015.

The initiative is consistent with Italy’s policy of safeguarding and promoting art and the know-how behind its extraordinary products, in order to enhance the value of the exceptional and vast cultural heritage in which they are rooted.
