Welcome in Toscana e Tirreno
This site will be the meeting point for all people who want to come to visit this beautiful region, that is Tuscany.
Palazzo Strozzi hosts a major exhibition dedicated to the extraordinary human and intellectual adventure that led to the current conception of the universe.
The exhibition reconstructs the history of the Cosmos, as designed and shown extending the Scientific Revolution, in the context of social and cultural events that have characterized the Mediterranean and European civilization.
A special section is reserved for the original telescope of Galileo came up to us (preserved in the Museum of the History of Science in Florence).
In this period the most famous event in Tuscany has been the Carnival of Viareggio 2009. Here you can find the the scheduled program of events as well as several beautiful pictures of masked parades held in Viareggio, slide shows and videos, one of which is shown below.
One of the strengths of the site are the pages of Festivals in Tuscany. The events are reported on the main page of Festivals but also on the pages of all individual provinces and the exact location of event is shown with an icon on the Google Map, along with GPS coordinates: thanks to Google, you can get the fastest route to get there.
