Learning experiences go beyond simulation and combine two countries and their respective cultures, all in front of a real public.
The 2013 edition of TuttoToscana program is open to enrollment. The Florence/NYC program has added a new event component of fashion in addition to the experience of managing and producing institutional, commercial and academic events of gastronomy.
TuttoToscana is an academic program that lasts for 3 weeks in Florence, Italy, and transfer to NYC for a week of real life events at prestigious locations. NYC event venues include our yearly James Beard Foundation location. Students specialize in their choice of 5 available areas - event management, art direction, food & wine management, food production and wine service. In NYC, the team of students and faculty fully produce and provide digital media coverage of events intended to showcase contemporary Tuscan cuisine for the US public.
