World Pasta Day, why Pasta as a choice

The 25th October event will be the 22nd edition of the World Pasta Day, which is celebrated every year on the same day all over the world. It is just natural to wonder, why so much attention is payed to such a simple nourishment, which is the base of every Italian’s daily diet. Pasta is globally consumed, but the Italian version is certainly unique: with all its varieties and recipes it has become the symbol of an entire culture. Such a daily nutrient led to the development of a culinary tradition which becomes with time more and more creative, and which makes Italian pasta worldwide known and incomparable. The purpose of this initiative is not only to bring the public closer to the main Italian dish, in its multiple variants, but also to raise awareness on the properties of pasta as a nutrient for a complete and well-balanced diet. Including organic, gluten-free, and whole wheat dishes shows how versatile and suitable for all pasta really is.

The Italian Trade Agency

The Italian Trade Agency (in Italian “Istituto nazionale per il Commercio Estero” – I.C.E.) is the Italian institute through which the government promotes trade and Italian activities in foreign countries, as well as business and industrial opportunities between Italian and foreign companies. The institute supports the internationalization of Italian industries and their affirmation in foreign markets, also by organizing events which bring out Made in Italy excellencies abroad. The World Pasta Days event, together with True Italian, is an occasion not only to promote Italian restaurants abroad, but also to value the cultural tradition of a whole country.
