Initiative proposed by the Municipality
Speaking of November also means talking about Truffle, a product of excellence of a territory, such as San Damiano, which around this fantastic resource was able to build a system whose landscape, food, wine, quality of life, the laboriousness and ingenuity of their own people, the cult of traditions... with a look to the future, they represent a whole, a worthy corollary of a territory of extraordinary quality which is Piedmont; and November is the month in which the truffle has always attracted attention as the absolute protagonist of this part of the autumn season and as a prestigious product that from Piedmont has now taken flight to different worlds.
To make the most of the visibility of our Fair will raise the bar, we would like to introduce this as early as 2022.
This is not only to give greater prestige and prominence to an already well-known event, but increase the tourist flows in our territory. This opportunity could benefit the economy of San Damiano, already very much tried by this particular phase of economic situation, and at the same time offer more publicity to the Piedmont territory, not only for the unique landscape but also for the many food and wine excellences.
The organization and management of the event will be managed by the City, but certainly a valid help will come from the proloco, the Regional Wine Cellar Alfieri Hills of Asti and the various local association of the local Capon and the two local association of truffle’s experts recently formed.
The event has become increasingly important over the years, obtaining a well-deserved success of membership both among exhibitors and visitors, but it is also an annual event that owes its fame and fortune to the location in the historic center of ancient origin, linked to history, to the respect and exaltation of past things and so between the places, the historic houses, the church of the eighteen century, the squares articulate proposing curiosity to all visitors.
2022 will be a particularly important year as we intend to increase the number of exhibitors on the "Piazza del Commercio", involving, if possible, also producers from other regions of Italy.
The Fair will continue to make use of some events directly related to it, such as the food and wine festival by the proloco of San Damiano, and the Regional Hills Wine Cellar Alfieri.
During the Fair there are exhibitions of painting or photography of young and emerging artists, debates and conferences on the agricultural sector, food, and wine and socio-cultural set up within the municipal premises.
