All Day 10-22 Tuscany, Italy: Alumni Trip to Tuscany (Multi-Day Event)

ALUMNI TRIP TO TUSCANY: THE WORLD OF TUSCAN FOOD
October 22-29, 2018 

Travel to Tuscany with Babson College next fall and learn that not only are the traditional dishes defined by the region but the ingredients are locally sourced and seasonal. Discover how Italian food and wine producers today are dedicated to creating fine products that are not only good business, but also rely solely on organic and sustainable agriculture.

Highlights
  • Enjoy a combination of group meals with curated menus and independent time on your own in the evening for culinary exploration as you taste your way through Tuscany.
  • Learn about organic farming from a local farmer, followed by a memorable evening dining at Arnolfo, a restaurant whose chef has been awarded two Michelin stars.
  • Indulge in a sparkling glass of Prosecco at the beautiful, medieval Hotel Palazzo San Lorenzo in the heart of Tuscany, and watch as the hotel’s chef creates local pici pasta, made only with flour and water.
  • In Siena, stroll through the unique medieval garden of Orto de’Pecci with a volunteer gardener. Witness firsthand how herbs and vegetables are used in the kitchen and then indulge in a delicious, seasonal lunch.
  • Visit a family-run ice-cream producer and hear stories about how the business has grown from the first store that opened in 1982. Step behind the scenes to witness how gelato is made, and stroll through the medieval heart of Siena with a delicious scoop of home-made gelato.
  • Meet with a small, artisan beer producer in San Quirico d’Orcia to learn about the production process, how he strives for quality over quantity, and the importance of only using natural ingredients sourced from local farmers.
  • Tour an all-woman-run winery near Montalcino, and learn how they are making it in a male-dominated business.
  • In the rolling hills of the Chianti region, learn about the pasta production process from an expert. From the grinding of flour to the making of the pasta dough, you’re sure to be pasta pros at the end of the demonstration!
  • Visit an olive oil estate in the Chianti region and witness how the owners have made innovative changes to the way olives are grown and the way oil is extracted. And, of course, enjoy a tasting after the presentation!
  • Take part in a truffle hunt in San Miniato, watch a demonstration on how to make several truffle dishes, and indulge in a truffle-based lunch that includes taglioni al tartufo.

7:00 AM - 8:00 AM Wellness-Power Yoga with Lauren Shaffer

Lauren Shaffer found yoga in 2011 as a stressed out college student in need of a calm and quiet spot to unwind. As a teacher, her mission is to provide students with a safe, sacred space with her guidance, knowledge and tools offered as support. She loves to teach a variety of classes from restorative to power, all of which tie breath with movement to a well thought out and sequenced flow. She includes the solid backbones of the practice—like functional movement and energetic organization—always presented with lightheartedness as she accommodate all levels. She also loves to bring some fun into her classes. Lauren’s focus is to ensure her students leave with their bodies feeling stronger, as well as a clearer mind helping them take on the rest of their day with a smile!

7:00 PM - 9:30 PM The Love of the Nightingale

A Play By Timberlake Wertenbaker

In The Love of the Nightingale, a retelling of the Greek Philomele myth, playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker reckons with the silence and complicity that often accompany violence against women. A work that is enthralling and witty, The Love of the Nightingale is a modern morality play that asks audiences to consider the dimensions of authority, memory, and retribution. This significant play for our times demonstrates the high cost of saying nothing and the immense power of speaking up.

Directed by Sarah Rozene
Presented by The Empty Space Theater, a faculty-led company made up of Babson, Wellesley, and Olin students and guest artists.

General Admission Tickets: $15
Babson Faculty/Staff:$10
Students: $5
