Islamabad is celebrating the Italian cuisine week. In a glance it appears like a blockbuster movie of the 70s, ‘The Godfather’.
As per the shared details, the Italian restaurant Zigolini’s at the Marriott hotel, Islamabad was swarming with diplomats from the Italian embassy and the expatriates living in Islamabad, all impeccably dressed in Italian brands and looking dapper. The only add-on which Al Pacino, James Caan, and Marlon Brando did not wear was the N-95 mask. The event was to celebrate the Italian cuisine week in the world at the invitation of the ambassador of Italy Andreas Ferrarese and Mrs. Albana Ferrarese.

Over the centuries, Italy’s universally beloved products have become recognized as the magnum opus in the world of gastronomy. This cornucopia of famous Italian dishes has been incorporated into age-old recipes still religiously adopted by generations of artisans from across Italy’s different regions.
Thanks to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with the help of the Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Education, Tourism, and Directorate of Culture & Economic promotion joining hands and putting their heads together came up with the idea of organizing this yearly event.
This is the fifth year since its commemoration. One diplomat at the event informed that last year, there were over 1000 activities planned by almost 300 diplomatic-consular missions and Italian culture institutes around the world so that the project can showcase the theme ‘Food Education: The Culture of Taste.’
