Maritozzo Day: Rome celebrates the maritozzo

Rome holds 2019 edition Maritozzo Day.

Maritozzo Day, Rome's annual declaration of love for the maritozzo, takes place in the capital on Saturday 7 December.

Now in its third edition, Maritozzo Day is devoted to celebrating the popular Roman dessert, from the classic cream-filled version to more adventurous creations.

Proceeds from the day-long event will go to a charity fundraiser in aid of the Breast Unit at Rome's Fatebenefratelli Hospital on Tiber Island.

Organisers Tavole Romane promise "hundreds of variations" of the maritozzo at venues across Rome on 7 December.
