Furthermore, there are going to be two live cooking stations – one dedicated to pizza making and the other one dedicated to cookies.
“In our activities we aim at promoting Italian culture and values not only to adults, but also to children, who are the citizens and stakeholders of our future” said Ambassador of Italy Paolo Toschi and his spouse Federica Cellini Toschi, opening the family-focused event.
