Additionally, Bagnoli is a stunning touristic place surrounded by the Apennine Mountains offering a variety of animals and plants, ski slopes, and natural grottoes. It is a member of the “Truffle City” National Association and one of the most important Italian centres for truffle trade.
The “Black King” grows in symbiosis with the oak trees and the beeches of Bagnoli Irpino area. It is a renowned high-quality food, with a unique smell and dark colour, mostly used in the Italian and European cuisine but also for the production of cheese and alcoholic drinks. It represents a Campania product of excellence, a symbol of the relationship between humans, nature and tradition.
Bagnoli’s Black Truffle Showcase which takes place in the historic centre of the village represents an opportunity to link local cuisine with the cultural, artistic and natural heritage of the area. Craft exhibitions, excursions, folk music, local food and the black truffle are on the main stage. The festival is a stepping stone to boosting the local economy through touristic activities, and it represents an opportunity for the whole Region to foster business and investment. Nonetheless, it helps the local products and the black truffles in particlar occupy the place they deserve on the European market, thus preserving and promoting Campania Region while promoting its renowned richness.
