“Let’s call together the General States of the truffle – observes the director of the Academy, Giuseppe Cristini -, the best scholars and researchers, together with all those who can narrate the future of truffle culture and explain us above all why Italy has the best truffle at world. From Piedmont to Tuscany passing through Marche and Umbria, the truffle districts must be increasingly calamitators of well-being, interests, real and circular economy. It takes culture and it takes competence, these are the missions that we must carry out as men who love and live the truffle with the aim of making the palates and minds of the whole world happy ».

With the proclamation of the “wise men of the truffle”, the Academy of Truffles in the world aims to offer a new tool to promote the Italian spirit linked to the prince of the kitchen and king of the table, through highly qualified testimonials at an international level.

“We need a governance of the truffle – continues Cristini – that leads to always new promotion and training projects, talking about all edible truffles, available to an increasingly capable and reactive restaurant, oriented to offer the best in every occasion and in every season of the year”.
