Pizza acrobatics with Salvatore – the Italian Nureyev
I set out to find an obscure talent, and I found it walking down Valencia on a Saturday night. I saw a man in a window over the road twirling pizzas in time to Lady Gaga. Think Cirque du Soleil with pizza dough. I was mesmerised. I crossed over, called out, and in a Romeo and Juliet style exchange in reverse, I told him who I was. I’d find my obscure talent.
Salvatore’s now training me in the ancient art of pizza twirling. He even gave me his first rubber pizza to practice with. I sleep with it by my side. Pizza twirling’s addictive, I twirl at the bus stop, in queues, in parks… another calling in life?
