30th November - Festa della Toscana

The Festa della Toscana on 30th November was instituted in 2001 by the Regione Toscana to commemorate the abolition of the Death Penalty in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany by Pietro Leopoldo I on 30 November 1786, and to renew its commitment to the promotion of human rights, peace and justice as elements of the Tuscan identity.
Numerous events are organised for this public holiday in the region of Tuscany.
