The initiative, realized for the first time in 1970 in San Francesco (Pelago) soon became an important regional and national exhibition, also thanks to the important wine competition that saw the challenge of farms. An initiative re-proposed with constancy over the years and that despite crossing moments of crisis and finally of profound renewal over the decades has been carried out over five decades sinceAssociation "Toscanello d'Oro"(Until the early 2000 years) and finally reborn thanks to Proloco of Pontassieve. "So much wine has passed under the bridge", but the historical experience continues its life and will celebrate its "golden wedding" in style.

Another flagship event, the "Selfie" show with Lorenzo Baglioni (2 Sunday June 21.15 hours): a real phenomenon that thanks to millions of web views has landed in Sanremo and on TV: a success made up of ironic and irreverent songs with which it often deals with social or "educational" themes.

Among the special events to celebrate the 50 years of activity in style, it will be open at the Geo Museum in Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, starting on Wednesday 29 May photo exhibition dedicated to the history of Toscanello, curated by Laura Bati. And always on Wednesday evening 29, at the Cittadella del Vino, the book will be presented instead “Toscanello d'Oro. 50 years of history, of wine, of celebration"(Polistampa editore) edited by Daniele Pasquini and Francesco Guidotti: two occasions to share with the territory the history of the longest manifestation of the territory.
