The International Alba White Truffle Fair stands out, every year, as the most important event in the world dedicated to the “King of Mushrooms”, the Tuber magnatum Pico.
An event that, for eight weeks, turns the spotlight on Alba, on the hills of Langhe, Roero, Monferrato, on quality food and the excellence of our country, by becoming one of the most coveted and prestigious showcases of Made in Italy.
The Alba White Truffle has proved, once again, to be the ambassador of a very wide and varied context, the flag-bearer in the world of a territory rich in beautiful landscapes, traditions, culture and food and wine quality that is one of the major economic drivers of the territory of Langhe Monferrato and Roero.
Furthermore, on 31st October 2017, Alba was officially proclaimed by UNESCO “Creative City for Gastronomy”. A recognition that reinforces the international vocation of the town.
Set in the wonderful natural scenery of the Langhe, of which it is the historic and economic capital, Alba is a city rich in culture, history and traditions. It is the ancient Alba Pompeia, though definitely with pre-Roman origins, rich in archaeological finds and evidence of its glorious past.
The city has among its citizens some illustrious men such as emperors (including the consul Publio Elvio Pertinace), experts in law and history, ministers, but also modern entrepreneurs. Alba is known for its beauty, its curious views, for its renowned industries and for its gastronomic products, including truffles and wine, sold today all over the world.
