Italian Truffle

Italy is the first producer and exporter in the world of the white tuber magnatum prized as regards quality and quantity; in the whole peninsula it is possible to collect all the truffle species used in gastronomy.
The most important white truffle production areas, due to their geographic conformation, are Piedmont (in particular Alba, in the province of Cuneo, the province of Asti and a part of the province of Turin), south-eastern Lombardy (Mantua, in the protected Isola Boscone), Emilia-Romagna (the entire Apennine belt starting from Piacenza, and in particular the hills of Bologna and Forlì), Tuscany (especially in the province of Pisa and Siena), Umbria (in the province of Perugia) the Marches (in the province of Pesaro and Urbino; ​​the area of ​​the Sibillini Mountains is also very popular), Abruzzo (in the province of L'Aquila and Chieti), and Molise (in the province of Campobasso and Isernia).

More common is the black truffle, which sees in Umbria and Molise some of the areas most suited to its production, both of the summer variety (the so-called scorzone), and of the more valuable winter variety (Tuber melanosporum).
