Carne Genuina celebrates National Pizza Day

How National Pizza Day was born

Pizza is the symbolic food of Italianness and - perhaps not everyone knows that - January 17th is celebrated as National Pizza Day. After all, pizza is the undisputed cultural heritage of humanity: there are many versions, from the classic margherita to the super expensive with truffle, from the simple marinara to the white pizza without tomato. A matter of taste, nothing else. However, she - and she alone - is the undisputed queen from which it also takes its name: the Margherita pizza which, on January 17th, finds its perfect celebration. During the day, Sant'Antonio Abate, patron saint of pizza chefs, is celebrated and the city of Naples - where pizza originates - chooses to celebrate the day by showing the whole world its generosity and attentiveness to the needs of the poorest.

How do you celebrate pizza day?

Naples represents the fulcrum of the celebrations, everything starts from here. Pizza has always been considered a symbol of conviviality, of being together, of eating something good and tasty. The choice to celebrate World Pizza Day meets the desire to help those in need and here - the good hearts of the Neapolitans - have developed a truly praiseworthy initiative.

Since 2017, on January 17th, volunteer associations have come together and give away hot, steaming pizzas to the city's needy people in the area. All the participating pizza chefs organize themselves in such a way as not to leave anyone excluded, so as to make the initiative truly effective. Year after year, the growing media interest meant that the initiative spread like wildfire to other cities, once again bringing to the fore the enormous generosity of the Neapolitan people.
