Franceschini mangiando pizze di Enzo Coccia Lifeless at all, for the two Neapolitan masters this is a very fervent autumn. Enzo, firstly, celebrated his twenty years of business, then the success at Gastronomika with his pizza San Sebastian, while Ciro recently blew on the first candle of his La Dea Bendata that, in a very short time, managed to be listed among the undeniable addresses for who wants to eat the Neapolitan pizza as it should be. And it could not also end better the October busy schedule of the Museum of Contemporary Art Donnaregina that, in its in 7200 square meters, alternated meetings, exhibitions, screenings and debates.

Therefore, eyes on Naples, this time not for its many problems but for its strong tourist and cultural propensity, as noted by the same Franceschini, happy to have chosen the city for the important rendezvous. Now it is our turn to be ready for the unparalleled, unique and exclusive journey that Expo will offer to Milan and all of Italy.
