The first edition of Tusciaelecta, promoted by a the Municipality of Greve in Chianti, with the support of Regione Toscana (the Tuscany Region) and Provincia di Firenze (the Province of Florence), presented a group of fourteen international artists who had elected the Chianti region, or at least Tuscany, as the place to live or work in. Each of them had chosen a place, generally an historical site, to install their own works of art giving birth to an interesting touristic- cultural itinerary into the Greve in Chianti area.
