"Flour, water, yeast and salt have always inspired the Neapolitan passion, the result is a product that can still conquer tastes all around the world thanks to its simplicity," these are the words of President Antonio Pace, whom enclosed the spirit that guided the creation of the book.

In this book, the whole effort of the Association to protect the identity of this Italian Made excellence is expressed, a commitment born in 1984 with the rules defining that a product must comply with tradition, which led to "the True Neapolitan Pizza "being promoted and valued all over the world.
