our story

Like all beautiful stories, Sassone Tartufi starts from a personal passion.

At the end of the 90s, Egidio Sassone, a young boy from Rocca Imperiale, in Calabria, deeply loves the taste, flavour and tradition of Truffle. Thus, he chooses to follow his passion more and more, hunting for this treasure of the earth, with his first truffle dog.

With time, Egidio realizes his talent for this business and, above all, that the land of Calabria is very rich in truffles. With this knowledge he founded Sassone Tartufi, calling on some of the most renowned Truffle Hunters of the Calabrian-Lucan Apennines to collaborate. This land, klissed by the sun of southern Italy and embraced by the Ionian Sea, is fortunate to be fertile and surrounded by hills and woods, the perfect environment for the maturation of the Truffle.

Our Story

truffles and truffle hunters: our intense passion


From being a small local company, as it was between the 90s and the beginning of the 2000s, Sassone Tartufi today delivers its products – fresh truffle and derived products – not only everywhere in Italy but all over the world.


In every product by Sassone Tartufi, today, you can find the warmth of our Calabrian-Lucan Apennines, the refinement of a unique product but above all the genuineness of those who, many years ago, chose to follow their Passion and make it a craft. Always following a tradition rooted in our culture.

Our work, our Intense Passion, stems from Egidio’s enthusiasm and the experience of the truffles of our territory, managing to bring to your tables not a simple truffle but an ancient history of Calabria and Basilicata.
