In order to achieve this noble goal, the IPA, or ilFornino Pizza Academy was created. The founding fathers of this academy are Chris Salman, Jimmy Salman and direct from Italy, Master Pizzaiuolo AlFonso Saviello. Master Pizzaiuolo Alfonso Saviello, brings with him his tremendous knowledge of the history, the authentic tradition, evolution, and teaching ability surrounding Neapolitan pizza.
