The search of the truffle is an unique and exciting show, a mixture of feelings and of humors: the smell of the wood, the damp on the skin, the noises that come in the fog, the pants of the dog and the buckets calls of the “trifulau”, in a low voice, almost whispered.
Arrived in the “tartufaia” the dog begins to look for, earth nose, he crosses a brief line, he changes direction, he returns on its footsteps, he stops, he stays motionless for an instant and then he begins to rasp the ground, frantically.
