The date has been announced for Pastaria Festival 2020, the free event dedicated to professional updating on the work of pasta production, organised by Pastaria, in collaboration with associations, universities, professional bodies, companies and sector experts. The event will take place in Parma (Italy) on Friday, 25 September. The assembly of the International Pasta Organisation (IPO) that will, for the first time ever, be held as part of Pastaria Festival, will – following the successes of the previous edition – contribute to making the event even more international.

Once again it will be Parma, Italy’s Capital of Culture for 2020, that will host the fourth Pastaria Festival, the free event dedicated to professional updating for Italian and international pasta producers. 

The event is scheduled to take place on 25 September 2020, when the sector’s key players (associations, research institutes, universities, professional bodies, companies and experts) will gather in Parma to share their knowledge and skills on the activity of pasta production, in a free day – just as Pastaria’s specialist information is free – of meetings, workshops, conferences, presentations and laboratories.

“Following the success of last year’s Festival, which brought more than 340 qualified operators to Parma, we are anticipating that Pastaria Festival 2020 could grow significantly in terms of numbers attending, in particular from abroad” says Lorenzo Pini, Pastaria’s publisher and editor-in-chief.

“Contributing to the presence of a larger number of international pasta factories will undoubtedly be the staging, as part of the event, of the annual assembly of the International Pasta Organisation (IPO), one of the most significant new additions to this, the fourth Festival. We send all the members of the International Pasta Organisation our heartfelt thanks for having chosen Pastaria Festival as a location worthy of hosting what is such a significant moment for the organisation, that will see the involvement of many renowned pasta factories from every continent.”
