The National exhibition-market San Miniato white truffle
In the immaculate rustic hinterland, oaks, lime trees and willows host between their roots the finest mushroom can be found: it is the white truffle of the San Miniato hills. The Tuber Magnatum Pico, this is its scientific name, is always a source of wealth of our lands. For over a century San Miniato trufflers go out during the night with their dogs and walk through hidden paths between the trees, trying to capture the minimum and weakest trace, so they can excavate and collect the precious tuber. In San Miniato, one of the towns which has established the National Association of the Truffle Towns, also the Association of the Trufflers of San Miniato Hills has been created, and works with the protection and development of the areas with truffles, promoting this precious tuber in several field exhibitions both in Italy and worldwide. However, in San Miniato every year in November, the National White Truffle of San Miniato Festival takes place, which is a great showcase/market that attracts thousands of Italian and foreign visitors.
