Hands On Learning
The Culinary Academy at Monteverdi
The Culinary Academy features a state-of-the-art teaching kitchen, individual modules for up to 12 students, as well as indoor and outdoor dining space so that each class can comfortably and immediately enjoy the fruits of learning. Located just below Castiglioncello’s piazza, the Culinary Academy has been infused into one of the village’s beautiful historic buildings that served for nearly two centuries as a school for the local children.
