” For the pizza it took about seven years – explained Rosati – maybe it will take us longer or maybe less, the important thing is that we can also reach this fundamental goal “. All this movement stems from the fact that it is necessary to protect the typical Neapolitan coffee from the countless imitations that are encountered around the world. Furthermore, coffee in Naples is a symbol, as is pizza: there are many tourists who arrive in the Neapolitan city with the specific intention of wanting to try this very famous drink. One of the places of worship where coffee is celebrated as an act of devotion is the Caffè Gambrinus, and it is exactly from here that the initiative that has Unesco as its objective started.
