5th Week of Italian Cuisine in the World ( 23rd-29th November)

The 5th Week of Italian Cuisine in the World takes place from 23 to 29 November, the theme of which is "Knowledge and tastes of Italian territories 200 years after the birth of Pellegrino Artusi".

This yearly event is promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation together with the Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Education, University and Research and the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism, as well as all the main bodies, associations and institutions representing Italian cuisine and Italy in the world: Regions, ICE Agency, ENIT Agency, universities, chambers of commerce, trade associations, cooking schools, networks of Italian restaurants and operators in the food and wine sector.

The main objective is to promote the quality of Italian cuisine and our agri-food products. This is achieved by the entire Italian diplomatic-consular network by highlighting the Mediterranean diet as a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet within everyone's reach, enhancing products with a protected and controlled designation, counteracting the phenomenon of Italian sounding, presenting itineraries of food and wine and regional tourism, promoting the rediscovery of Italian villages and their typical culinary products, illustrating the Italian training offer in the cooking and hospitality sector.
