Salvatore de Rinaldi is a master pizza chef for AVPN (Verace Pizza Neapolitan Association) for which he has always been involved in training courses for young pizza makers, as well as in professional consultancy all over the world and events. His son Cristiano follows in the footsteps of his father, consecrating himself year after year as the best promising young pizza maker, already involved in different consulting roles in Europe and not only thanks to his talent and knowledge of English and French.
Casa de Rinaldi is therefore also the home of true Neapolitan pizza, the one that follows the ancient traditions handed down orally for generations and then finally written down in 1984 in the famous International Disciplinary of the True Neapolitan Pizza by a group of famous Neapolitan pizza makers who then gave life to AVPN (True Neapolitan Pizza Association).
From that moment on, it was possible to draw a line between the authentic pizza of Naples and its thousands of imitations, so it could spread throughout the world. Today there are almost 500 pizzerias affiliated in all continents that make pizza with natural leavening at room temperature, following the precise indications of tradition.
