On Monday, January 19th, 2015, the Genoese Pesto made by marble mortar and wooden pestle is set to become UNESCO World Heritage. Thanks to Regione Liguria, Genoa City Council and Chamber of Commerce of Genoa, which are the promoters, we will be able to realize this dream, cultivated for a few years and decided during the final of the 2014 Pesto World Championship.
