It’s a great chance to learn and taste the Tuber magnatum, i.e. the white truffle mainly found in the Langhe and Montferrat areas of Piedmont, and, most famously, in the countryside around the cities of Alba and Asti.
Costing between $6,000 to $10,000 per pound, the aromatic tartufi bianchi are among the most expensive foods in the world. White truffles cannot be cultivated; growing underground near the roots of oak trees, they are hunted by trained dogs and pigs. The magic of the Middle Ages continues with“Il Borgo si Rievoca” commemorates with games for the public and re-enactors ready to relive and reconstruct in the town streets and squares bits from the past, scenes of ancient everyday life, habits, costumes and crafts. It will be a big celebration meant to “narrate” the Middle Ages through their activities, by taking visitors into an atmosphere that will combine history and tradition as well as excellent food and the desire to taste local products in a unique medieval setting.
