Truffle harvesting remains the most unusual and important business for many indigenous people; it is the main mean of subsistence and lifework. That’s hard to imagine, but the cost of one of those rare mushroom may be about several hundred dollars. Mushrooms are searched using specially trained dogs.
Most foreign guests are invited to take part in picking mushrooms; tours are usually arranged for groups of several people. Alba is the center of the truffle industry; the world-famous annual Truffle Fair is held there. It is visited by famous chefs and ordinary travelers; in addition to mushrooms, a lot of interesting products can be purchased there. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Another important symbol of the region is wine; a very interesting and colorful holiday is dedicated to it. Corsa della Botti Wine Festival is held annually in Nice Monferato.

A huge number of people come to watch these races; after it comes the most enjoyable part of the festival, wine tasting. For a modest fee, anyone can taste the most exquisite varieties of drinks, as each local winery brings its greatest wines to the festival.
Il Canalone Every June, a very interesting historical festival featuring unique medieval atmosphere is held in Canelli. Last years, so-called knight clubs from various European countries have taken part in the festival. Among the winter holidays, the Carnival is worth noting; it is held in the picturesque town of Ivrea. The culmination of a colorful and noisy carnival is the Battle of the Oranges; locals revere an uprising that was organized against the Emperor Barbarossa in the 12th century.
