Naples' pizza twirling wins Unesco ‘intangible’ status

The Neapolitan art of pizza twirling has joined Unesco’s list of “intangible heritage”, securing the coveted status alongside a Saudi art form traditionally practised only by women.
     The art of pizzaiuolo – which has been handed down for generations in Naples, southern Italy – was approved by the UN cultural body’s world heritage committee, which met on the South Korean island of Jeju.Approximately 2 million people had signed a petition to support Naples’ application, according to Sergio Miccu, head of the Association of Neapolitan Pizzaiuoli – no doubt buoyed by his offer of complimentary pizza if the culinary tradition joined the prestigious list. “We’ll be giving out free pizza in the streets,” Miccu promised.
