Manchester will have a chance to sample the best in Italian street food under one roof in a celebration of authentic Italian cuisine this week.

Held in Old Granada Studios, Manchester, premium street vendors will serve quality signature dishes from different regions of the country, from Sicilian Arancini Ragù to Torta Fritta from Emilia Romagna, and transform Manchester into a traditional Italian street food market.

Hosted by Birra Moretti, the Moretti Gran Tour cherrypicks the key names in the UK street food movement to offer an unrivalled taste of Italian culture

Following the success of Pizza in the Piazza and Italy Live, which saw the Piazza of Tuscan town of San Gimignano recreated in the heart of London and live-linked to the Italian town, premium Italian beer now brings a taste of Italy to Manchester.
