Idyllic and true: At dawn me and my grandfather would go out into the cold to milk the restive cows. Later, I would go through the pastures, pick some flowers and share them with the cows.

Massimo Vidoni: When I was a child, I had discovered the art of truffles when I accompanied my uncle. The early morning preparation and going to the mountains, with the dogs, is where my profound interest really started.  Once the dog pointed to the location where there could of been a possible truffle, it was like a gold rush for me, being well versed in how difficult it was to find truffles.
