The Italian Cuisine World Summit 2021


The Italian Cuisine is famous for its extremely diverse set of recipes, cooking techniques, and multi-generational traditions. To celebrate this rich and diverse cuisine, the 12th edition of the Italian Cuisine World Summit was launched with a gala dinner on November 6 held at the Mandarin Hotel. The event – held under the theme of ‘The Sustainability Food’ – was coordinated by Rosario Scarpato, with the collaboration of the Italian Industry & Commerce office in the UAE and hosted 190 selected guests, including the most important Italian institutional representatives and 50 of the most important distributors and chefs in Dubai.

The evening was dedicated to Bergamot, a rare fruit grown in Calabria exclusively along the 100 km coast on the Ionian Sea, which the Reggio Calabria Chamber of Commerce has been promoting around the world.

The traditional annual ceremony organized by the Italian Industry & Commerce Office in the UAE was held to reward the Italian company that distinguished itself in the UAE in 2021.

Piero Ricotti, past President of the Italian Industry & Commerce Office in the UAE, awarded the leading company in the world for mosaics ‘Trend Middle East Dubai’. The precious plaque was delivered to the CEO Andrea Di Giuseppe.
