Toscana '900

Toscana ’900: through December 31, 2015 around Tuscany

Toscana ’900 is a project entirely dedicated to art of the 20th century in Tuscany: exhibitions, events, a multimedia video guide, and an application gathering a thousand voices to tell a single story.

More than 100 museums, 14 main events and 18 other happenings have been organized to promote 20th century art in venues around the Tuscan region, many with extended opening hours on Saturdays and Sundays. Toscana ’900 Pass holders will be entitled to free admission to participating museums. Guided tours of artist house-museums and homes, educational activities, workshops and selected itineraries will take place in the Toscana ’900 Pass network but also in other venues in collaboration with Toscana ‘900.
