People at VPN Americas

VPN Americas is the American Delegation of the Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana, an international non-profit organization founded in the mid 1980's by a group of Neapolitan pizzaioli (pizza makers) who sought to cultivate the culinary art of making Neapolitan pizza.

The association was officially established on June 1984 as a denomination of control (DOC) by the Italian government, a designation that granted the VPN a legal entity the ability to give special designation to pizzerias who meet strict requirements that respect the tradition of the art of Neapolitan pizza making. The President is Antonio Pace.

- cultivate the culinary discipline of the Neapolitan pizza, with its requirements, preparation, ingredients, and manner of cooking.

- preserve the origin of the authentic pizza and the tradition of the pizza as it began in Naples, Italy

- teach the art of making pizza to any individual who would like to learn the methodology that, for more than 300 years, distinguished a product unique in the world.

- designate by a certification those pizzerias that respect the culinary tradition of the Neapolitan pizza, and locations where such a pizza may be enjoyed.
