On March 10, the Tuscan American Association will be holding its annual ceremony in the Palazzo Vecchio’s Hall of the Five Hundred.


Presided by co-presidents Andrea L. Davis and Maurizio Mancianti, the ceremony is an institutional event organized with the City of Florence to attribute the Tuscan American Awards, given to three recipients who have contributed significantly to further developing the ties of friendship and exchange between the United States and Tuscany.







This year’s award recipients are Mons. Timothy Verdon, art historian, university professor and director of the Opera del Duomo Museum; Rocco B. Commisso, for the love shown to the city of Florence and the professional football club ACF Fiorentina; while the third recipient is the recently deceased Cav. di Gran Croce Giuliana Fiumicelli Plastino, founder of the Academy Le Muse and its prestigious International Award “Le Muse”, and president of the Club “Amici delle Muse”, who will be represented by her son Luca Plastino.


Intended as an opportunity to present persons or entities who are positive role models for American students studying abroad in Tuscany, the ceremony will be held in English.


The award ceremony begins at 5pm. Welcoming remarks will be made by the mayor Dario Nardella, the consul general of the US Consulate in Florence Benjamin V. Wohlauer and the two co-presidents.
