Italian Naples pizza-making joins UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list

Italian Naples pizza-making joins UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list

"Kochari, traditional group dance, just inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity", the organization said on Twitter.

"The Inter-governmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage under UNESCO inscribed the "Kumbh Mela" on the Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity during its 12th session held at Jeju, South Korea", the MEA said.

Pizza has conquered the world, but the art of "pizzaiuolo" - twirling the dough and baking it in a wood-fired brick oven - is less well known outside the Italian city of Naples.

Pizza-makers in Naples celebrated by handing out free pizza on the streets.

The event has its origins in Hindu mythology which tells how a few drops from a pitcher containing the nectar of immortality are said to have fallen during a fight between gods and demons on the four locations across India which host the festival-Allahabad, Nasik, Ujjain and Haridwar-every four years.

Locals profess bafflement at foreign topping innovations such as pineapple, which appears on the Hawaiian.

Naples' most popular export was not the only tradition recognized Thursday by the United Nations, which includes more than 400 traditions from around the world.

It comes after some two million people joined a petition to support Naples' application, according to Sergio Miccu, head of the Association of Neapolitan Pizzaiuoli - no doubt buoyed by his offer of complimentary pizza if the age-old culinary tradition joined the prestigious list.

Food culture already on the Unesco list includes Turkish coffee culture and tradition, the gingerbread craft of northern Croatia and the traditional ancient Georgian method of Qvevri wine-making.

Unesco has also placed six traditions on its urgent safeguarding list, which means they will get support to prevent them disappearing.

These include a whistled language that developed in Turkey as a way to communicate across steep mountains and rugged topography but is now being threatened by mobile phones.

UNESCO said globalisation and young people's rejection of traditional heritage had driven the practice "closer to oblivion".
