He was the first, ten years ago, to bring “gourmet pizza” to Rome – this was the most popular definition at the time, before it became abused and ill-used – offering very complex seasonings added to a light and fragrant dough, which was willingly intended as a “neutral base” for the topping, and the “tasting format”, serving one pizza at the time so that every guest could fully appreciate it.

The pizzeria

After all, the claim of In Fucina – the restaurant of Edoardo Papa and his wife Emanuela, initially simply called Fucina – is “the restaurant that loves pizza”. And Papa defines himself as a chef, rather than a pizzaiolo, even though he’s earned this qualification in the field, and in an atypical way, since he arrived in the kitchen through pizza – or vice versa, as a gourmet lover and frequent client of fine restaurants with a tendency to put his finger in the pie – after a long career in the communication industry.

To celebrate the anniversary, on the 8th of March they organised a four-handed event with another pioneer of pizza in Rome, Giancarlo Casa ofLa Gatta Mangiona, with a nice meeting of pizzas and dishes from the two “neighbours” – they’re both in the Monteverde neighbourhood, broadly speaking – and the Tuscan wines from Fattoria di Gratena.
