Lucia's Pizzeria (2016 Shattuck Ave.) in downtown Berkeley is the only East Bay restaurant participating in Neapolitan Pizza Week, a Bay Area-wide initiative running this week until Sunday, April 15, which includes pizza-making demonstrations, a photo exhibition, panel discussions, and tastings of the tender-crusted, tomatoey, mozzarella-cheesy treat at numerous pizzerias. Created by the Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco and Dress in Dreams Movie & Costume of Rome, the celebration follows a recent decision by UNESCO to inscribe the art of Neapolitan pizza-making into its List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
