This has already become a classic, the moment when all the protagonists of the Summit and a selected public of food lovers meet on the eve of the launch of the event. For the first time, the dinner, which included an incredible tasting of wines from small Italian Vineyards, was held in the context of a fashion and style show at the dinner table, with Pinko’s beautiful models and Alessi’s products that decorated the table-setting. Thanks to Academia Barilla for having brought their selection of historical menus and antique cookbooks.
The Summit was held under the patronage of the Italian General Consulate to Hong Kong. The General Consul, Alessandra Schiavo, was present for the majority of the official events and participated actively in the creation of a jacket for the Italian cook worldwide, promoted by the Italian Chamber of Fashion and designed for the Summit by the Milanese designer, Lorenzo Riva.
