An ancient restaurant in Turin, a Hong Kong based Iranian sales agent, and a gorge in the south of Piedmont—what do all these things have in common? The white truffle trade, of course. Every year between September and December this precious type of mushroom starts its journey from the small Italian city of Alba to be delivered to the most important restaurants all over the world.

Italiasquisita spent a day with the most famous and youngest Alba white truffle dealer. 24 hours to discover this man and to explore the world that surrounds this expensive and rare product.
