Pizza is a Neapolitan celebration that boasts a tradition dating back to the first half of the eighteenth century. Today it is the most popular food found on any table around the world.
The documentary tells the evolution of the pizza both from the historical and the gastronomic point of view and reveals the secrets of the ancient Neapolitan cuisine that have led the pizza to stand out as the tastiest and the cheapest food, being popular among the poor as well as with the rich.
The reasons for this success belongs only to the culture of Naples, to it’s philosophy, and to its “way of life”, as the greatest Neapolitan pizza makers unanimously, with the most famous actors and musicians of the city of Naples, can testify. Food and philosophy of life identify each other in producing a singular combination, as sociologist Domenico De Masi and psychotherapist Massimo Ammaniti explain.
Last year Neapolitan pizza has been nominated for protection under UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list.
