Launched in 2016, Italian Cuisine Week is a yearly initiative involving the whole network of Italian diplomatic missions and aimed at promoting the culinary culture that is at the core of the Mediterranean diet and central to Italy’s identity and lifestyle.
With the theme “Dining with the Italian cuisine: well-being with taste”, this year’s Food Week event aims to explore Italian products and culinary traditions, as well as their connection with hospitality and healthiness.

Speaking at the ceremony, Italian Ambassador Marco della Seta said that Italians are proud of their cuisine. Everyone knows pizza, pasta, gelato, or tiramisu. These dishes have become familiar names everywhere in the world, and appear in different languages.
