The International Day of Italian Cuisines: The Mission

International Day of Italian Cuisines

Our annual appeal to Italian culinary professionals and lovers of Italian food, at whatever longitude and latitude they may be, is a tradition by now. Thousands of them will join itchefs-GVCI on next January 17th to celebrate authentic Italian cuisine and to protect it from forgery and counterfeiting. The International Day of Italian Cuisines is born from a mission: "we certainly aim at educating worldwide consumers, but more than anything else, we want to protect their right to get what they pay for when going to eateries labelled as "Italian", that is: authentic and quality Italian cuisine." says Rosario Scarpato, GVCI Honorary President.
