The city of Alba (CN) has based its candidacy to Creative Cities on the awareness of the strategic importance that the enogastronomic department of Langhe and Roero covers both in the economic field and in the cultural field. A vocation not only millenarian, but innovative and pulsating, which involves the agri-food, mechanical, industrial, craft, catering and, today more than ever, food and wine tourism, which has elected the Langhe and the Roero to the prestigious destination of the good food and good wine. Being part of the Creative Cities gives us the opportunity to develop even more the vocation and international projection. Hence the special international attention paid to the precious truffle, especially concerning the variety of Bianco d'Alba, defined by many White Gold.
The truffle is a fungus that looks like a tuber, provided with an outer rind, which can be rough or smooth, and an internal pulp furrowed by veins that give it a marbled appearance. The truffle, being a fungus, lives in symbiosis with other organisms, usually plants such as oak, hazel, poplar and linden, and reproduces through the production of spores.
