Digital edition of Genoa Pesto World Championship will be held on 20 March 2021!
The eighth edition of the Pesto World Championship will take place on Saturday 20 March in a totally digital form for safety reasons and to allow the participation of all competitors. The Palatifini Association and the Genoa Chamber of Commerce, with the institutional partners of the Liguria Region and the Municipality of Genoa, confirm the event in a digital version: a sign of resilience against the negative economic situation caused by the pandemic. The event will start at 10 am with the live streaming of the finalists from Palazzo Ducale on the Zoom platform, who will be contacted in these days to confirm their availability. Those who cannot connect live, due to the time zone or other impediments, will be allowed to recover via smartphone, with the help of friends and relatives, while making pesto with a mortar, at home or in the workplace, in the days preceding Saturday 20 March. The amateur submissions will be edited in a video that will be streamed during the race.
