The Marathon

La ToSCA marathon is one of the first marathon born in the European Tango scene…
Our event has been chosen from a lot of great dancers coming worldwide; from the beginning, our goal has been to create a friendly, inclusive, welcoming atmosphere, keeping an international allure

and a great ronda in the dancefloor.
From 2016 La Tosca takes place in Villa Castelletti, an amazing venue situated in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, a short distance from the historical center of Florence.
The Villa, one of the most striking Historical Villas in the Florentine countryside, is surrounded by its magnificent park (listed in the National Archive of Historical Heritage Sites).
The winter garden of the Villa, a beautiful and bright hall that will be transformed into an amazing ballroom with 300 sq meters of laminate parquet floor and, from there, you can enjoy a spectacular view of the park and of the sky!
The marathon starts in the late afternoon of Friday and stops at 20:00 on Sunday. The After Marathon, FREE for all participants, takes place in the same venue, on Sunday, from 21.30 to 2.30.
Unfortunately, as you know, 3 days before its start, we had to suspend the 12th edition (6-8 March 2020) because of the pandemic!

A lot of sad months are passed from that day… but now we can confirm that

we'll meet in 4-6 march 2022,

and we'll due our best to give life to a joyful, fun, and passionate edition.
