If you love Neapolitan pizza, you need to make your way to Naples next week, when the Napoli Pizza Village transforms the Lungomare Caracciolo (Naples’ sea promenade) into the “the greatest pizzeria of the world”.

50 of Naples’ most renowned pizzerias will set up shop on the promenade. In addition, spectacular “pizza performances”, workshops, a world championship, music and shows will all contribute to make this an entertaining – and tasty – event revolving around pizza.   

On the 1st and 2nd of September, the 14th edition of the Pizzaiuolo World Championship will crown the world’s best pizza chef, who will take home the Trofeo Caputo, from the name of the Naples-based company producing high-quality “00” flour for pizza.

You will also have the chance to learn the art of pizza-making assisted by 12 master pizzaioli.

The event runs Sept. 1-6, from 6 pm till midnight. Free entry. For more information, click here
