NAPLES, ITALY - 22 OCTOBER 2019: A pizzaiolo (pizza maker) takes out a pizza from the oven at Ntretella, a pizzeria in the Spanish quarters in Naples, Italy, on October 22nd 2019.
Ntretella, the name of the pizzeria, is traditionally the girlfriend of Pulcinella, the typical mask of the art comedy linked to the city of Naples.
Ntretella's pizza is the traditional one, with long rising dough. "We make it rise at least 48 hours and this guarantees a great lightness to the dough” says Maria Rosaria, the 56 years old owner of the pizzeria. "The ingredients are all of exceptional quality; we use various “Slow-food” products, such as the ancient Neapolitan tomatoes”.
Maria Rosaria is the sister of a brilliant Neapolitan chef, Gennaro Artigiano, 57 years old, owner of the Locanda Ntretella, an old restaurant in the Spanish quarters, known for its excellent cuisine and maze of narrow streets full of restaurants and pizzerias
