The Extraordinary Italian Taste Pavilion

The official opening of The Extraordinary Italian Taste Pavilion at Taste of Abu Dhabi was on November 9, 2017 at the presence of His Excellence Italian Ambassador Liborio Stellino.

The Ambassador Stellino, giving a welcome to the Italian Michelin Starred Chefs, said: “If I have to give a title to this Pavilion, I could say that it is the Italian response to the Louvre Abu Dhabi. The idea is that food is culture, food is style, food is management and leadership, food is the best example and pattern that the Italian culture can export”.

The opening speechs was also hold by Mr Gianpaolo  Bruno, Italian Trade Commissioner, and by Mr Rosario Scarpato, Italian Pavilion Coordinator.

Marche Region was the special guest pavilion with the presence of the Major of Fermo city and with the enterpreneurs of the Tipicita’ delegation. They invite you all today to visit and taste the typical Marche’s food and have a look to their beautiful handmade products.
