Marriage of taste between Alba and Parma under the sign of the UNESCO Creative Cities

The partnership between the two Italian gastronomic districts was on stage at the International Alba White Truffle Fair: on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th Parma was the guest star with cooking shows, tasting moments and excellent products. At the Fair there was also an open debate “Alba and Parma dialogue on UNESCO's Creative Cities for Gastronomy" attended by the Mayor of Parma, Federico Pizzarotti, the Mayor of Alba, Maurizio Marello, Municipality of Parma Head of Tourism, Cristiano Casa, Municipality of Alba Head of Culture & Tourism, Fabio Tripaldi (which, since last year, personally follows the candidacy of Alba in UNESCO Creative City), the President of the International Alba White Truffle Fair, Liliana Allena, the General Manager of Parma Food, Alessandra Foppiano, and Director of the Association for the Vineyard Landscapes of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato, Roberto Cerrato.

This has consolidated the friendship between two "Cities of Taste", to support Alba’s proposal in joining the UNESCO Creative Cities Network for Gastronomy field, a title already won by Parma in 2015.
