A group of Neapolitans has filed a lawsuit against the famous Sorbillo pizzeria, accusing it of fraud and deception for not making pizza according to the traditional Italian rules. The group claims that Sorbillo’s pizza is an insult to the Neapolitan culture and heritage, and that it violates the standards of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN), which certifies the authentic Neapolitan pizza.
According to representatives of the group, Sorbillo’s pizza is too thin, too crispy, too oily, and too loaded with toppings, and that it uses low-quality ingredients and machines. The group demands that Sorbillo stop calling its product pizza, and that it pay compensation and damages to the Neapolitan people.
Sorbillo, however, denies the allegations, and argues that its pizza is a modern and innovative interpretation of the classic Neapolitan pizza, and that it caters to the tastes and preferences of its customers. Sorbillo also states that it respects the Neapolitan tradition, but that it does not limit itself to it.
The lawsuit has sparked a heated debate among pizza lovers, who are divided between the purists and the innovators. Some support the Neapolitan group, saying that Sorbillo’s pizza is a disgrace and a mockery of the Neapolitan art. Others defend Sorbillo, saying that its pizza is delicious and creative, and that there is no one right way to make pizza.
The case is expected to go to trial soon, and the verdict could have a significant impact on the pizza industry and culture.
