Truffleland is an accredited Training Company of the Regione Umbria and is included in the Regional list of teaching farms. Thanks to our consolidated experience in the field of Truffle cultivation, and to the centuries-old experience of the Urba­ni family, the true authors of the history of the truffle, and the availability of hundreds of hectares of mycorrhized seedlings, Truffleland guarantees suitable spaces for educational activities.

In a short time, Truffleland has become of the most popular destinations for truffle experts and aficionados from all over the world. In the Truffleland Master School, thanks to classrooms and laboratories, processes of mycorrhization, propagators, and to the genome bank of 4 types of “tuber”, we organise training and information activities, refresher courses and classes for students and operators, in line with the most recent discoveries on the subject of Truffle cultivation. The training pathways are divided into theoretical and practi­cal lessons, which start from the truffle seedlings in the greenhouses and envis­age interdisciplinary studies, including the environment, its protection and biodiver­sity. All pathways are aimed at diverse user targets and are run by certified operators, agronomists and specialised tutors. In fact, Truffleland has begun important collab­orations with different universities, for a rigorous Truffle cultivation.

Furthermore, Truffleland continually organises seminars and workshops under specific conventions with various experi­mental and research institutes, the Ministry for Agricultural Food and Forestry Policies, the Parco Tecnologico Agroalimentare dell’Umbria 3A, and the main institutes of Agricultural Education in Umbria.
