For this occasion, Genoa and Liguria were colored green-basil, to support the candidature of Genoese Pesto made at the mortar to Unesco World Heritage.
The heart of the initiative was the signature collection which took place on Saturday 17 March 2018 during the World Championship of Genoese Pesto made at the mortar . The event was also held in Genoa Pra’ in Piazza Sciesa, where we took part in the organization of the “Collective Pestata”.
A great goal has been achieved throughout Liguria: over 30,000 signatures collected!
