Research has always been entrusted to the inseparable combination of man’s experience in identifying suitable plants and the infallible nose of his dog, who, having identified the exact point, frantically digs to bring the precious and fragrant tuber to light. The quarrier does not stop to enjoy the poetry of dawn and the sunset for fear that one of his competitors has already passed through his gathering places…and while hiking he leaves no trace, he is a real expert guide to the valleys and Italian woods.
The wind, the frost, the heat and the rain do not stop him. There is no Sunday or holidays to rest, truffles do not wait, you have to look for them and find them when they emit their scent. Every moment can be a good moment because nobody knows when and why it will happen!
“I geni nell’ arte e i tartufi nei campi
se ne fregano delle regole e della cultura;
si trovano ma non si possono imitare.”
