Lucan Truffle

Basilicata is a land in which one can find high quality truffles, even though it may not be as well known for them as other Italian regions. This feature is not only supported by the excellent culinary traditions based on this tuber, but backed by rather recent scientific research, such as those conducted by Alsia (Lucan Agency of Development and Innovation in Agriculture), in collaboration with the Biology Department, Defense and Agro-Forestry Biotechnologies of the University of Basilicata, as well as the Vegetal Genetics Institue of Perugia's CNR in 2004. These entities have located areas particularly rich in truffles and with great organoleptic properties.

There are various species of truffle in the Park's territory, among which the fine white truffle, the Summer black truffle or Scorzone, the marzuolo truffle, the fine black truffle, just to mention some of the most noble and appreciated ones.
