Roberto Panizza

Roberto Panizza has dedicated his life to protecting and elevating the ingredients and traditions of his home region of Liguria. In 2007 he founded the Pesto World Championship, a bi-annual competition bringing 100 contestants from all over the world to Genoa’s Palazzo Ducale to battle for pesto bragging rights. Thanks to Roberto, you don’t have to travel to Genoa for the freshest, most authentic Pesto Genovese there is!
