This will be a very special day!
In the morning we will reach a nice farm house close to the wonderful town of Spoleto.
The farm is situated in the middle of a vast truffle reserve, from which the family has always extracted precious truffles for their own use.
A very intense activity actually underlies the apparently simple act of truffle gathering:
- the selection and training of the truffle dogs, fundamental collaborators who, with their finely honed sense of smell, know how to pinpoint and dig up the truffles.
- equally crucial arethe keen attention to nature´s signals indicating new truffle fields
- the respect for moderation in gathering, a fundamental rule for safeguarding the truffle supply.
The possibility of discovering and living the fascination of truffle gathering is open to every guest at the Farm: the outings, with Felice or Pietro accompanied by a pair of well-trained dogs, take place very early in the morning or late in the evening. This unforgettable experience reveals the subtle rapport between master and dog along with the rite of discovery and extraction of the truffle. For each truffle extracted, man´s faithful (and hungry) friend receives the reward of a small piece of bread.
After an enthusiastic searching we will have a light lunch in the beautiful country house where truffle will be the “king of the plate”.
Afterwards we will visit Spoleto, the enchanting Medieval city of the famous Festival dei Due Mondi.
