My grandfather “Cichin”

My grandfather « Cichin » started with this passion when he was 10 in 1899 and everything began with him. Thanks to his resolution he found out many places where it grew the “Tartufo Bianco di Alba”; today we still go round these places looking at his secret journal.

In 1935 his son Dino was born (my uncle) and he, too when he was 10, started together with his father the activity going round the woods; this way his father was able to convey to him his passion and all secret places where the Tartufo Bianco d’ Alba grows.

This passion has been handed on firstly from my grandfather Cichin and then from my uncle Dino who still today enchants me and Luna when he talks about adventures and secrets of Tartufo Bianco di Alba
