Grosseto, the capital of the Maremma, is a large expanse, a plain a few kilometers from the sea and crossed by the Ombrone river. The historic center is enclosed in the ancient Medici walls, with a curious hexagonal shape and still visible today. Even the areas surrounding the city of Grosseto are rich in history thanks to the many historical monuments present.
Among the most important types of truffle in the area that can be harvested we find the so-called “bianchetto“, also called “marzuolo”. It can be found in the hinterland of the province or among the pine forests of the coast of the Tuscan territory. although the territory lends itself particularly well, and is also known for this reason, the Maremma truffles are never easy to find and collect, and require a particular passion that only true connoisseurs and seekers who make this activity a lifestyle, succeed in have and put into practice.
