Sapori & Saperi, meaning "taste and knowledge", is Naples' latest food event, celebrating Italy's world-famous regional recipes. Sample wine, tomatoes, fish and, of course, the inimitable mozzarella di buffala at Pompeii's Santuario delle Beata Vergine. In true Neapolitan style, Sapori & Saperi couples food with other popular traditions, like music and dance, poetry and story-telling by folkloristic groups. Expect a loud crowd, a party atmosphere and a warm reception.
