CANCELLATION WITH POSTAL MARKING (BY POSTE ITALIANE)
From 9.00 am to 2.00 pm it will be possible to get a cancellation with a postal marking explicitly created for the Meeting. An unique chance for the Italian and not only marcophilists and for the Genoa World Pesto Championship fans.
EXHIBITION OF THE ANCIENT MORTARS OWNED BY GENOESE FAMILIES
In the Sala delle Grida we will exhibit old and ancient mortars. For those who own a family mortars and want to participate to our initiative, they are invited to come to the Palazzo della Borsa between 8.30 and 9.00 of 7 April.
“SPAGHETTI BRIDGES COMPETITION”
Pasta will be presented also by a peculiar point of view by Architecture and Design students of the Polytechnic University of Genova. They will exhibit nine bridge models totally made of spaghetti in order to study their breaking point under load.
TWO PRELIMINARY CHALLENGES FOR THE NEXT GENOA PESTO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
We can’t miss preliminary rounds for the next final of the Genoa Pesto World Championship (March 17, 2018): the first round will see the lecturers and the guests of the Meeting, like the past edition of the Meeting, the second one will be dedicated to those students who will participate to the event by popular demand.
