True Italian Pizza Week Leipzig 2020

21 pizzerias, one week, one fixed price: True Italian Pizza Week Leipzig is a celebration of the best and authentic pizzas in Leipzig.

Avocado cream pizza, marinated veggies, arugula and pine nuts, grilled pancetta and smoked mozzarella, salsiccia, gorgonzola, spinach leaves, pumpkin, artichokes and cherry tomatoes, coppa, grilled eggplant, dried tomatoes and scamorza cheese… These are just some of the exceptional pizzas offered at True Italian Pizza Week, which this year arrives in Hamburg for the first time after the success of last year’s 72 hrs True Italian Food Festival. The event will also take place simultaneously in Berlin, Leipzig and in 7 other German cities: Hannover, Hamburg, Cologne, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart and Munich. When? From 15 to 21 October 2020. The aim of the event is to make known and celebrate the emblem of the gastronomic culture of the Belpaese, the symbol of the Italian spirit excellence and from 2017 also a UNESCO World Heritage, throughout Germany. So there will be many pizzerias involved, ingredients and doughs chosen but the formula will always be the same: an authentic Italian pizza to choose between two types, accompanied by an Aperol Spritz, at the special price of 12 €.

True Italian Pizza Week, organizers and partners

The event is organized by Berlin Italian Communication within the project True Italian in collaboration with Campari Deutschland. It is also supported by the Italian Embassy in Berlin, the Municipality of Naples and the Italian Culture Institutes of Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and Cologne.

The True Italian Project

True Italian is a network that aims to preserve authentic Italian restaurants found in Berlin through its brand (registered in the Deutsches Patent und Markenamt, the German patent and trademarks office), as well as a number of other initiatives and events held throughout the year. The project is pursued by Berlin Italian Communication/Berlino Magazine, a point of reference for the Italians and all those passionate about Italy who find themselves in Berlin. True Italian is made up of all the ambassadors of Italian cuisine who, starting from the product selection, show their passion for spreading the culture of “good eating”. When we talk about True Italian, not only do we focus on the chef/owner’s nationality but also on their approach to food. Creativity in the recipes and high-quality ingredients: these are the key focus points for True Italian restaurants.
