The tomato protagonist of the next days of Napoli Pizza Village

And it is the tomato, the "red gold", that is the heroic protagonist of these days here at Pizza Village.
It will be taken to the top by the 54 new influencers of Italian gastronomy present: some of the more than 150 employees of the company "Ciao - Il Pomodoro di Napoli", who work in the production of preserves and have become stars on Instagram.
The faces of the "ladies", in fact, have been immortalized in a series of photographs, real family portraits, to celebrate their skill and experience that handed down, a unique and ancient knowledge, essential to preserve the quality of a product as unique as the peeled tomato of agro nocerino.
A company that respects tradition, but looks to the future and for this reason has created the Street Art Festival in collaboration with the Costantino Cutolo Foundation.
Among the four finalists of the contest, Luigi Bevilacqua, Gosh & Teso, Arpaia and Yele, the winner will be chosen to create a mural dedicated to tomatoes on a space granted by the City of Naples.
Art, music and great gastronomy, all this is Napoli Pizza Village.
