About Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana
AVPN was founded in 1984, supported by the Chamber of Commerce, Handicrafts &
Industry. Old Neapolitan pizza masters, given the spreading of fast-food chains and the large
use – sometimes inappropriate – of the denomination “Original Neapolitan Pizza”, decided to
found the Association based on a protocol in order to protect and increase the value of the
pizzas produced and processed according to the old Neapolitan traditions and customs.
Thus, in June 1984, President Antonio Pace decided to put his idea in a written form and
set precise rules for the preparation and processing of “veraci” (original) pizzas. These rules
have been collected in the “Disciplinare Internazionale” (International Regulation)
The Mission of AVPN is, therefore, to promote and protect in Italy and worldwide the True
Neapolitan Pizza, i.e. the typical product made in accordance with the characteristics
described in the AVPN International Regulations for obtaining a collective brand mark “Vera
Pizza Napoletana”.

The Association is also involved in the promotion of the affiliated pizzerias and products
related to the protection of the art of Neapolitan “Pizzaiuolo” (Pizza Maker) recognized by
UNESCO as a heritage of humanity.
The Association has more than 800 Pizzeria https://www.pizzanapoletana.org/en/associati
and the “Mestri Pizzaioli” hold Professional, Amateur and Intensive courses to spread the
culture of Neapolitan Pizza.
