Create Your Dream Pizza And We'll Tell You If You Have A Roman's Passion Or A Heart From Napoli
Do you have a Roman's passion or a heart from Napoli?

Although we could not come together to learn and celebrate authentic Italian Pizza, ICCIAUS has collaborated with Buzzfeed Australia to teach Aussies the difference between authentic Roman and Neapolitan pizza.

Pizza in Italy is a serious affair, with different schools of thought, recipes and trademarks, and even worldwide recognition as a form of cultural heritage. It’s possible that not everybody knows about the intricacies and details behind this Italian dish or is aware of the existence of Roman and Neapolitan pizzas, two artisanal stiles deeply rooted in the regional customs from which they originated

It will also act as a driver for the 60th edition of the event, slated for 5th to 10th April 2022.

In terms of visitor flows, over 60,000 presences were recorded over six days, 30% of them from 113 countries. Over half were trade operators and buyers (47% from outside of Italy).

ICCIAUS Weekly Economic Update powered by Intesa Sanpaolo
The FOMC meeting of 21-22 September will mark a watershed for the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy. The Committee should officially open the discussion on reducing asset purchases, albeit without providing details on the operational technicalities and timeline of the tapering. We believe the reversal on the purchase programme will be announced in detail in November and begin in December. During the press conference, Powell should stress that the conditions to start tapering are substantially different from those required to start hiking rates: the reversal on rates is still very distant and not directly tied to the purchase programme.
