Mulino Padano sponsor of the Veneto Open tournament: on the field with Padano’s Pizza Truck

This year the company from Rovigo will be one of the sponsors of the only WTA tennis tournament on natural grass in Italy in the municipality of Gaiba (Rovigo)

SALARA (Rovigo) – The world of international women’s tennis reunites in Gaiba, in the province of Rovigo, for the third edition of Veneto Open, the prestigious WTA 125 women’s grass tennis tournament, with a prize pool of 115,000 dollars. The event, which will be held from 16 to 23 June, is among the eight most important women’s grass tournaments in the world, and this year will also see among its sponsors Mulino Padano , a historic reality in the Italian milling industry, which has its own headquarters in the nearby municipality of Salara.

Throughout the event Mulino Padano will liven up the Expo Area, located next to the central court, with an exclusive novelty: Padano’s Pizza Truck (link). It is a very original truck that will churn out delicious pizzas prepared by exceptional guests who will take turns during the evenings. All pizzas will be made with professional flours, the company’s flagship, expertly produced in the Salara milling plant. Tennis lovers will have the opportunity to taste them during the tournament days, enjoying a real culinary experience in the name of Italian excellence.

Tennis is a rapidly growing sport in Italy and the Veneto Open tournament represents an important international showcase, with the participation of high-level tennis players from all over the world who will stop in Polesine, in the second of the three weeks that separate Roland Garros and Wimbledon. The Veneto Open matches will also be broadcast live on SuperTennis TV (64 on digital terrestrial, 224 on Sky), as well as in streaming on the website and on the SuperTenniX digital platform.

“Mulino Padano has always promoted the productive and gastronomic culture of our territory – comments Valerio Cavallari , company administrator – With the same commitment, we have decided to support the Veneto Open tournament, one of the most beautiful success stories in the world of tennis . Events like this promote social growth through sports practice, not only to improve health, but also as moments of social inclusion and development of the territory that hosts them, generating a positive impact on the entire community. Through a dish that is a symbol of Italianness such as pizza, we wish to contribute to these initiatives, which, like food, offer well-being and healthy moments of aggregation”.
