AGMT was founded in 1993 to collect Tuscan mycological associations and to promote mycological research. To date, the AGMT consists of 25 groups. The Association carries on intense editorial, scientific, legislative and local activities. Since its foundation AGMT has been collaborating with the Tuscany Region: since 2012 it has been organizing preparatory courses for the collection and consumption of epigean mushrooms.
The AGMT herbarium is kept at the Study Center, which also houses a library and a microscopy laboratory. Among the publications, in addition to the Annali Micologici AGMT and Micologia Toscana, we mention the volumes "Storia della micologia in Toscana", "I funghi in Toscana. Mappatura e censimento dei macromiceti epigei" and "Libro rosso dei macromiceti della Toscana". In 2019 the first edition of the course of molecular mycological systematic and first conference for rediscovery and enhancement of mycological herbaria was organized.
