Italian Street Food Festival, a weekend to celebrate the best italian street food in Berlin

One weekend dedicated to the tradition of the authentic Italian street food.

Arancini, fried pizza, focaccia, panuozzi, prawns with ice, caponata, aubergine parmigiana, “cuoppi” (cone filled with seafood, meat or vegetarian), sandwiches with “porchetta” (roasted and flavoured pork), tasty cream puffs and cakes combined with real Neapolitan espresso and much more… The first edition of the Italian Street Food Festival is coming to Berlin and aims to celebrate once again the best Italian culinary tradition in Berlin. The “Belpaese” doesn’t only stand out for the cities of art and its beautiful beaches but also and especially for its delicious food. This festival wants to present the Italian culinary diversity, the traditional street food that every year attracts tourists from all over the world to Italy and makes nostalgic those who had to leave it.

The True Italian project

True Italian is a network that aims to preserve authentic Italian restaurants found in Berlin 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 during the year. The project is pursued by Berlin Italian Communication/Berlino Magazine, a reference point for Italians and all fond of Italy in Berlin. True Italian is composed by all those representers of Italian cuisine who show their passion in spreading the culture of “good eating”, starting from the product selection. When we talk about True Italian, we don’t only focus on the chef/owner’s nationality but also on their attitude towards food. Creativity in recipes and high quality ingredients: these are the key focus points for True Italian restaurants.
