This morning, Michelin released its list of stars for Italy's 60th ever guidebook. According to a release (below), the list for 2015 includes nearly 60 new entries, bringing the total number of restaurants in Italy with a Michelin star to 332.

Two new two-star restaurants have been announced: Il Piccolo Principe in Viareggio, Tuscany (pictured above) and Taverna Estia in Brusciano, Campania. 27 new one-star restaurants include Le Tre Lune in Calenzano, Tuscany; Damini Macelleria & Affini, which is located inside a historic butcher shop in Arzignano, Veneto; and Iyo in Milan, Lombardy, a fusion restaurant that "applies a creative, westernized approach to traditional Japanese dishes and offers a grand finale of European sweets."

Michelin is proud to note that 11 chefs of the chefs on the list are under 35, suggesting that fine dining in Italy is experiencing a renaissance as Italian chefs travel the world to study but return home to open their own ambitious restaurants.
