Expo 2015 does not forget pizza and the importance of this recipe for Italy in the world. But is it possible to innovate with pizza? Well, when it comes to pizza it is better not to touch the ingredients and the recipe, which is tradition, but when it comes to pizzerias, the situation changes. As Vinni also demonstrates: the 100% recyclable pizza box.
From these ideas was born the idea of the international competition The 5 Seasons, a 'pizza' title, conceived in view of Expo 2015 by Agugiaro & Figna Molini spa, a specialist in taylor made flours, in collaboration with Poli.Design, a consortium of the Milan Polytechnic. Below are the info and instructions.
The 5 Stagioni international competition: 3 cash prizes for the 3 best ideas in the field of conception, design and construction of places with pizza production. In short, pizzerias.
Expo 2015 it is the framework in which the initiative fits and will be enhanced. Also because the theme of the Expo is food and talking about pizza and pizzerias suits us perfectly.
