Valoriani UK, suppliers of Italy’s finest wood-fired pizza ovens, has stepped in to reduce the anguish of all those UK pizzeria owners who have been robbed of any World Cup joy – and possibly business boost – through Italy’s failure to qualify.
The ‘Valoriani Venti’ – a quiz testing Italian restaurant owners’ knowledge of Italy and FIFA World Cups – has been devised to help pizzerias at least relive the glory days of old, by answering questions about previous campaigns, incidents and Italian footballing legends.
It has been made available as a download in the news area at www.valorianiuk.com but a question per day will be posted on the Valoriani Facebook and Twitter pages, over the course of 20 days, starting from Monday June 18 and going right up to the day of the final – July 7.
Pizzerias can download the entire quiz and allow customers to test their knowledge whilst waiting for their meals, or complete the quiz themselves and see how much they really know about Italy at the World Cup.
If they submit the 20 answers by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on July 8, they could also win the Valoriani Venti World Cup trophy. All correct answers will be put into a prize draw and the winning name will be pulled out of a wood-fired Igloo oven housed in the Valoriani demonstration kitchen.
Answers will be posted online on July 10, in the Valoriani news area.
Valoriani’s Andrew Manciocchi says, “Whilst we’ve been installing commercial wood-fired ovens over the last few weeks, we’ve heard Italian restaurant owners lamenting the fact that they won’t have the buzz that comes from having passionate Italians gather together to watch the national team play at the World Cup, which is also something UK diners like to experience during a tournament.
“At least with our Valoriani Venti quiz, they can try to answer a questions each day, to see how much they really know about their teams that have played in World Cups. If they complete the questions and submit their entry, they could also win our Valoriani Venti World Cup trophy!”
