From 18 October to 8 November 2020 every Sunday the National Fair of the Fragno Uncinato truffle awaits you to discover the underground king of the woods, with a special edition, modified due to the particular situation in progress, “Waiting for the Thirty Year”.
Since 1984 the Fair inspired by the black truffle that is generously present in the woods from the Baganza Valley which boasts in Fragno (pretty fraction of Calestano) the ideal center of collection of the precious tuber and a long tradition of expert and passionate seekers (trifolini).The purpose of the Fair is clearly to make known, appreciate and enhance this wonderful gift of nature, both precious and mysterious, known by a few insiders, but able to represent an authentic resource. Food stands, market exhibitions, auctions and truffle dog competitions enrich the program every year. For 2020 the fair program has been modified to adapt to the current anti-covid19 regulations: however, there will be opportunities to taste the excellent truffle. The 2020 edition of the Fiera di Fragno includes themed menus in local restaurants, the Borsino del Tartufo (or the Sunday truffle market where the price of the product is established), the “Il diamante di Fragno” exhibition, themed excursions and visits to the truffle ground.
