Apicius - International School of Hospitality


Learning experiences go beyond simulation and combine two countries and their respective cultures, all in front of a real public. The 2012 edition of TuttoToscana program is offering a new program feature. The Florence/NYC program has added a new event component, in order to offer students 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. 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.

Event locations for 2012 include the James Beard Foundation, De Gustibus at Macy's in Herald Square and Queen's College CUNY.
