TuttoToscana is a specialized program
that combines academic learning,
event management, and event
production at international events.
The program name means “all things
Tuscan,” and aims to interpret, with
the help of its student/faculty team,
unique themes pertaining to Tuscan
culture in prestigious locations.
Students begin event management
and preparation through three weeks
of academic coursework in Florence,
which concludes with a weeklong
production and staging of an event
cycle featuring the James Beard
Foundation in New York City (Fall) and
a rotating line-up of other important
locations in the local community.

ABOUT the james beard foundation
The capstone events of the Florence-NYC edition in the fall
season culminate at the James Beard Foundation, America’s
most renowned reference in the world of gastronomy and the
professional restaurant industry. JBF is a non-profit foundation founded in honor of a great culinary patron, James
Beard, and carries on Mr. Beard’s desire to spread culinary
awareness through education. In addition to the foundation’s
educational efforts and its program of hosting chefs and
restaurants from around the world, its yearly food industry
awards recognize America’s established and emerging gastronomic talents. The foundation is located in Mr. Beard’s
former home in the heart of the charming West Village in
NYC, and is where the TuttoToscana team presents its event
concepts to the foundation members and the general public.
