Everybody loves Pizza!

Our pals Pizza! are in the running for the Deli Los Angeles Artist of the Month prize, which is that they can have a pair of songs mastered for a 7" record...which we all want to hear!  So please vote for them!  


 Margherita Maria Teresa Giovanna of Savoy(20 November 1851, Turin, Piedmont – 4 January 1926, Bordighera), was the Queen consort of the Kingdom of Italy during the reign (1878-1900) of her husband, Umberto I.

In 1889, the Margherita pizza, whose red tomatoes, green basil, and white cheese represent the Italian flag, was named after her. Her name means "daisy" in Italian. In 1906, the Queen mother’s nephew Luigi Amedeo, Duke of the Abruzzi made the first ascent of the highest summit of Mount Stanley (the third highest mountain in Africa) and named it Margherita Peak in her honour.

Politically she leant towards Fascism—in October 1922 the quadrumvirs (Emilio De Bono, Italo Balbo, Michele Bianchi and Cesare Maria de Vecchi) visited her at Bordighera to pay their respects prior to the March on Rome.
