This article is published in association with Toscana Oggi.

Fondé en 1983, cet "hebdomadaire régional d'information" est publié par la Conférence épiscopale de Toscane. Dans chacun des quinze diocèses de la région, il paraît avec une partie (de 2 à 4 pages) consacrée à l'actualité locale.

Bien que destiné à un public local, Toscana Oggi consacre beaucoup de place à l'actualité étrangère et aux débats de société, une occasion pour lui d'adopter un point de vue souvent proche de celui du Vatican.

Le site offre, en plus du contenu du magazine en kiosque, des rubriques spécifiques, des liens avec l'Observatoire juridique de la Conférence épiscopale toscane ou avec l'Observatoire sur la pauvreté de la Caritas toscane, plus des services aux usagers – guides culturels et cultuels, sondages, etc.)
