The real ceremony begins. Do mentions the myths and legends around the Red Guide’s inspectors: "The only thing that’s true is that inspectors are strictly anonymous. They don’t do so to catch the cook’s mistakes, but to be able to work serenely. They are Michelin employees like me, but while I’m just very passionate about food, they are very competent".

11.16
Time for the institutional introduction on Emilia Romagna, with the regional assessor of Tourism and Trade Andrea Corsini. In the audience, people are waiting for the new stars. Cheers from the Catering School students, sitting at the back. Norbert Niederkofler addresses them: "Work hard, guys. Our job is beautiful".

A few numbers: in 2018 there were starred 356 restaurants: 9 with 3 stars, 41 with 2 and 306 with one. Is the total number going to increase this year?  Are we going to have a 10th restaurant with 3 stars?
