You've never seen a world championship like this one!
From an idea by Fra Ranaldo, Appennino Tosco-Emiliano National Park, the Municipality of Ventasso and the cooperative "Briganti di Cerreto", together with the magazine "Passione Funghi e Tartufi" and the association "A Passeggio nel Bosco" organise the 5th edition of the World Mushroom Championship, that will take place on 7th and 8th October 2017 in Cerreto Laghi (Reggio Emilia).
Its purpose is to create an event that has Porcino mushroom at its centre: Porcini to hunt for; Porcini to pick; porcini to study; porcini to tell; porcini to photograph; porcini to cook.
The idea is to gather mushroom-lovers in Cerreto Laghi, to create a positive connection, to promote environmentally-friendly hunting and picking methods, to understand and to improve knowledge about woods and mushrooms, to happily celebrate together this gift of nature.
Participation to the information evening on Saturday, 7th October is required in order to take part in the competition, which will take place on Sunday, 8th October.
