TRUFFLE FROM CALABRIA
Francesco loves his country.
Born and raised in Calabria, he walks towards his dreams and approaches them step by step.
His soul is sincere and positive because he is aware that every peak can be reached, if you really want it.
He knows that dreams have no limits if you don’t stop dreaming.
His place is in the Pollino mountains, in the heart of the National Park, among those peaks that rise not far from his hometown, Cosenza.
That mountainous massif of the southern Apennines, along the border between Basilicata and Calabria, is the place where Francesco finds himself.
And it is also the place where he loves to take his guests and all those who want to venture out in search of the Pollino truffle together with an expert truffle hunter and his faithful dog.
