(ANSA) – PALERMO, JUNE 22 – The Bio-Mediterranean Cluster took part on June 20 in Pizza Day, which earned Expo Milano 2015 the world record for the longest pizza in the world. Chefs from all the countries of the Cluster performed on stage to celebrate one of the most famous foods in the world. As part of the respect typical of the Cluster for the values of cultural integration and sharing between Mediterranean countries, the performance was another opportunity to enable wide participation. Pizzas ranged from the Sicilian variety with ancient strains of wheat and ‘tumminia’ flour to four types of Lebanese manoush; from Tunisian ‘mtabga’ (a type of vegetarian pizza) to Greek pizza with feta cheese, olives and oregano; from the well-known San Marino ‘piadizza’ with honey and sodium bicarbonate to pizzas with sausages, olives, onions and peppers from Egypt. The event was a chance to rediscover complementarity and differences in how pizza is made in different areas. ”While walls are built and borders are sealed in our world,” said Cluster chief Dario Cartabellotta, ”at the Bio-Mediterranean Cluster the barriers are brought down due to strong cultural integration through food traditions, shared spaces and culinary mastery, in line with the ideals of Expo Milano 2015”.
