“When in 1850 my great-grandfather arrived for the first time in the United States,” says Olga Urbani, ownership/manager of the company, “The Americans perceived the truffle as a strange, unknown thing. To let them change their mind the urban family has moved for decades between Italy and America and in the family letters that I personally collected and kept in the museum of Truffles, built in memory of my father, lighthouse that illuminates the path of my life , there are beautiful stories that tell the relationship between these two worlds. Today, thanks to this important work, the truffle really likes all over America and the presence of skilled chefs facilitates this diffusion. Chefs who have learned from the great masters of Italian cuisine and who later, have also been able to innovate with great skill. This exchange of knowledge and cultures, coupled with the need to adapt to a new market, have been a strong stimulus for our company. We have been able to innovate and renew our products without ever forgetting the origins and the great tradition on which we can proudly rest our present and imagine the future.
