In Bahrain there are very good Italian restaurants and people are well aware of the unique quality of our culinary tradition. This year’s Week of Italian Cuisine in the World aims at further promoting the “Made in Italy” agricultural and food industry, as well as enhancing tourist destinations and the Mediterranean Diet, one of the elements that make Italy the healthiest Country in the world.
