Which mysteries does the city of truffles hide? Is there a relationship between the inhabitants of Alba and magic? Has Alba a magic and mysterious soul? We think so: if we observe things with kids eyes, we will call magic everything that is not rationally explainable, just like San Teobaldo’s “flour miracle”; we can go back to ancient Rome to consult Haruspex together with Elvio Pertinace or return to the Middle Ages, when witches would make their potions with magic herbs. Finally, let’s be amazed by Pinot Gallizio’s alchemies, his “vegetal chemistry” and his “Death Hall”! These are only a few examples…
