The event will also take place simultaneously in Berlin and in 10 other German cities: Cologne, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Hanover, Leipzig, Mannheim, Munich, Münster, Nuremberg and Stuttgart.

When? From 15 to 21 September 2022.

Numerous pizzerias will be involved, the toppings and doughs chosen, but the formula is fixed: an original or classic Italian pizza to choose from two types accompanied by an Aperol Spritz at the special price of 15€.

True Italian Pizza Week, organizers and partners

True Italian Pizza Week is organised by the Berlin Italian Communication agency within the True Italian project and with the collaboration of Campari Deutschland. The event is supported by the City of Naples and the Italian Cultural Institutes in Germany.

The True Italian Project

True Italian is a network that aims to preserve authentic Italian restaurants in Germany through its trademark (registered with the Deutsches Patent und Markenamte the EUIPO) and a series of initiatives and events throughout the year. True Italian are all those ambassadors of Italian cuisine who, starting with the choice of ingredients, demonstrate their commitment to spreading good eating every day. Let’s be clear: when it comes to True Italian, the focus is not the nationality of the chef/manager or owner, but the approach to cooking. Originality of recipes and quality ingredients: these are the two key criteria that guided us in our choice of the pizzerias involved in True Italian Pizza Week 2022.
