The Pesto Competition in Montepegli (in the hills above Rapallo, Liguria), valid for the 4th Edition of the World Championship, was very intense and participated. The winner is Roberto Ciccarelli, followed in second place by Stefano Ferro (a family of very good pesto makers!) and then by Stefania Passaro and Mario Zanoni.

The jury was presided by the World Champion, Federico Ferro, and by Maurizio Valle, one of the organizer of Palatifini Association. The jury also included Francesca Faruffini and Roberto Tarella.

After the competition, participants enjoyed the opportunity to have lunch at the Montepegli Festival. Thanks to the mortars and pestles available, a group of young “pesto makers” took the opportunity to work with them!
