The fourth ‘Italian Cuisine Week’ took place yesterday evening at the Hilton Hotel in Belgrade and has a humanitarian character. The event, which will last until 24th November, will be linked to the campaign to repair the damages that the recent floods did the city of Venice.
At the event, the Italian ambassador to Serbia Carlo Lo Cascio, the director of the Italian Foreign Trade Agency Marina Scognamiglio and the famous Michelin-star Italian chef, Eros Picco, talked about the initiative.
The campaign, launched by the municipality of Venice, aims to help the city seriously damaged by the huge floods in the last few days. The event takes place in 110 countries around the world and is sponsored by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Relations.
The Italian Embassy in Belgrade organized the event in collaboration with the Italian Institute of Culture, the Italian Foreign Trade Agency, the Serbian-Italian Chamber of Commerce, the Association of Italian Entrepreneurs in Serbia, the Honorary Consulate of Italy in Subotica with the support of Italian and Serbian companies.
The Italian Embassy conveys the appeal of the Mayor of Venice Luigi Brugnaro and invites everyone to contribute to this charity campaign.
“Venice is a pride of the whole of Italy, Venice is the heritage of all of us, unique in the world. We will restore its splendour thanks to all of you,” said the Embassy in a note.
