72 hrs True Italian Food: in Berlin the third edition of the biggest Italian food festival abroad

58 Italian restaurants, four days, one single price of 7€: it is the long-awaited third edition of the 72 hrs True Italian Food.

Aubergine parmigiana, caponata, pasta all’Amatriciana, pasta alla carbonara, homemade gnocchi and ravioli, creamy salted codfish, Sarde in saor (sweet and sour sardines), boar meatballs, risotto with wild mushrooms and taleggio cheese, tagliatelle ricotta and ‘nduja, porchetta (savoury, fatty and moist boneless pork roast), tigelle, selection of Italian cold cuts and cheeses, panuozzo, Bagna Càuda (warm dip typical of Piedmont), Sicilian cannoli, pistachio cream, and much more: a big party with the tastes of the true italian cuisine is about to take over Berlin. Starting on Thursday, September 27th until Sunday, September 30th, 58 Italian restaurants, pizzerias, wine bars and cafès will offer their own specialities to give to all the Berliners a tour of the best true Italian tastes. Anywhere you go, the price is going to be the same: 7€ for a glass of tasty wine, a Spritz, a beer or a soft drink (depending on the restaurant) and a small portion of the speciality of the restaurant. Our goal is to spread the Italian culinary culture abroad, with a focus on special dishes that are not so well known outside of Italy.

Porchetta D’Ariccia: try it at Prometeo

The 72 hrs True Italian Food event

In order to try one of the 50 different combinations of specialities in our True Italian restaurants, the only thing you have to do is going to one of them, between Thursday and Sunday, and order the True Italian speciality. 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 supported by the Italian Cultural Institute of Berlin and sponsored by Acqua Panna, San PellegrinoAmaro Lucano, Limoncetta and Olio Costa. Media partners are Berlino Magazine, Buongiorno Italia and I Heart Berlin.

The map

In order to facilitate the tasting tour, we created the 72 hrs True Italian Food map: a metro map that indicates the location of every place participating in the event. It will allow you to check all the restaurants’ addresses, as well as their opening times and their True Italian speciality. The map is available both as a online PDF file and as a flyer in all the participating restaurants or at the True Italian office in Gryphiusstr. 23, Berlin Friedrichshain. Here you can find the map on Google Maps.

The True Italian project

The True Italian project’s aim is to create a network that promote and add an extra value to the Italian tradition in Germany. In fact, every True Italian place has a sticker with the project logo (filed with Deutsches Patent-und Markenamt) on its window proving its participation in the network. True Italian is also a dynamic platform which involves different events, tasting and cooking workshops. The project has been created and carried out over the years by Berlin Italian CommunicationTrue Italian are all those Italian cuisine ambassadors that, starting form the choice of ingredients, prove every day the dedication to the high quality of their dishes. To be clear: when we talk about True Italian, we don’t simply refer to the chef or owner’s nationality, but we talk about the way they approach to the cuisine. Unique recipes and care about ingredients’ quality: these are the keywords of every True Italian restaurant.
