de Truffle

A combination of excellence: the uniqueness of a product of a specific local area, which has become famous all over the world, the White Truffle of Alba and the quality of an industrial production, the one made by Alessi, whose global appreciation is unlimited.

A three-year project born from the collaboration between Città di Alba (the City of Alba), l’Ente Fiera Internazionale del Tartufo Bianco d’Alba (the International Alba White Truffle Fair), l’Ente Turismo Alba, Bra, Langhe, Roero, (the Tourist Centre for Alba, Bra, Langhe, Roero), Centro Nazionale Studi Tartufo (the National Centre for Truffle Studies), Poetica, Festival di Poesia della Città di Alba - Arti, scienze e culture (the Poetry Festival of Poetry of the City of Alba – Arts, sciences and culture) and Alessi. In 2015, with the presence of Alberto Alessi at the International Alba White Truffle Fair, the collaboration between the institutes and the institutions is finally established. In 2016 the Castello di Grinzane Cavour is home to a roundtable with internationally renowned designers and architects invited to the workshop with the aim to create the “Alba white truffle kit” including a truffle-slicer, a display and a box. a In September 2017 the exhibition of the prototypes of the “Alba white truffle kit” is scheduled and it will feature the projects of the 15 designers invited by Alessi, as well as the announcement of the workshop winner. The exhibition venue, open until 26th November, will be at the Sala Romana of Palazzo Banca D'Alba, a building rich in history, the result of a major restoration work in the historic Alba city centre.
