72 hrs True Italian Food Festival, the greatest party of the Italian cuisine goes to Hamburg

After the success in Berlin, the 72 hrs True Italian Food Festival comes for the first time in one of the most important German cities: Hamburg. Are you ready to find out what it is?

From Venetian Scampi with garlic, passing through the Tuscan pappardelle with boletus, reaching the capital city with the Roman pinsa and continuing with the Neapolitan montanara, the maccheroni battered tart and the fried pizza, until to arrive at the Sicilian arancini and the Aubergines Caponata, without forgetting the inimitable Sardinian mallureddus and much more. Hamburg will be for the first time the location of a big party of the Italian cuisine! Starting on Wednesday, September 18th at 5 PM, until the evening of Saturday, September 21st, more than 50 Italian restaurants, pizzerias and wine bars will offer a small portion of a selected Italian regional specialty together with an Aperol Spritz, Campari Amalfi (or something else to drink) for just 7€. The event’s goal is to spread the Italian culinary culture abroad, with a focus on special dishes that are not so well known outside of Italy. Follow the Facebook event for more updates.

The 72 hrs True Italian Food event

In order to try one of the multiple specialties in the True Italian restaurants, the only thing you need to do is to visit one of them, between Wednesday and Saturday evening, and order the specialty exclusively prepared for the event. All these places will also offer their regular menu dishes. Every client will have the chance to choose to stay and try something else or switch to another True Italian restaurant. The event is organized by Berlin Italian Communication within the project True Italian. It’s sponsored by Campari, Aperol Spritz and Averna and supported by the Italian institute of culture. in Hamburg.

The map

In order to facilitate the tasting tour, we have created the 72 hrs True Italian Food map: a Hamburg metro map that indicates the location of every place participating in the event. On the other side it will allow you to check all the restaurants’ addresses, as well as their opening times and their True Italian specialties. The map is available as a PDF file and on Google Maps and soon also as a printed flyer in all the participating restaurants. Don’t throw the map after the event: you can use it all year long to find the best Italian restaurants in Hamburg!

True Italian Project

True Italian is a network that aims to preserve authentic Italian restaurants found in Germany through its brand (registered in the Deutsches Patent und Markenamt, the German patent and trademarks office), as well as a number of other initiatives and events held throughout the year. The project is pursued by Berlin Italian Communication/Berlino Magazine, a point of reference for the Italians and all those passionate about Italy who find themselves in Berlin. True Italian is made up of all the ambassadors of Italian cuisine who, starting from the produce selection, show their passion for spreading the culture of “good eating”. When we talk about True Italian, not only we do focus on the chef/owner’s nationality but also on their approach to food. Creativity in the recipes and high quality ingredients: these are the key focus points for True Italian restaurants.
