THE TRUFFLE HUNTERS
It is not just a film, it is a magnificent portrait of authentic, everyday life.
It is an intertwining of people's stories and traditions.
The film tells a glimpse of the life of the Trifolaos and their community
of Cisterna d'Asti and San Damiano d'Asti, describing them for what they are:
real and genuine people.
Real "old Trifolao"
from which to take an example
for their love and their determination and
at the same time for their simplicity.
Unique people, full of values, including:
respect for nature and the forest,
animals and their trusted and beloved dogs.
The protagonists of the film are not actors, they are real people, real, unique,
that we should all be able to meet on our way.
A film that leaves you speechless, that fills your heart with love.
From this wonderful documentary film an equally wonderful project was born
An association was founded that has the goal to protect this ancient craft and to safeguard the forest.
Terre di Tartufi
it is made up of a group of friends
(trifolao, naturalists, farmers, doctors, engineers, freelancers, photographers, journalists),
who have identified a common passion, that of love for their land and they decided
to channel it into a concrete project of witness and involvement.
Thanks to the donations received, including those from the film's investors
today the association owns more than 30 hectares of woods- Forest
in which the trifolao can go without the fear that the dogs will be poisoned,
plants cut out of spite, etc.
All together in addition to looking for the truffle,
they take care and will take care of it to protect and safeguard the green lung: the Wood.
