Hi edouardo, alex from wildmushroomsonline again. i will message you my email now - check your PM (top left under user status, you should see 'unread messages')

Looks like you are getting some good info already here.
I didn't know wood blewits may not be common in italy. They are pretty proliffic usually round here (wiltshire) definatly one to look out for if you haven't had them before. very good eating and easy to identify (too sweet orange juice smell FTW). Once we get the 1st frost i always find them in areas of falllen pine needles, if you spot a fallen branch blewitts are often nesting in the green needles underneath. When you find one usually you will find more nearby.

I normally use googlemaps too for directions etc but i have found that bing is better for shrooms.

you can change the view to ordance survey which as mentioned above is great for seeing paths/tree types&density/etc

It has not been a great year so far here but we had some big thunderstorms the last few days so heres hoping next week is better
good luck

Hi Sighthound sorry to hear you are not having any luck. Mushrooms are definitely out there - found plenty of Hedgehog Mushrooms / Pied de Mouton (Hydnum repandum), Winter Chanterelles & some Porcini last weekend. Once the winter frosts set in Wood Blewits (Lepista nuda) & Field Blewits (Lepista saeva) should be found - both excellent eating.
Keep trying & I'm sure you will find mushrooms before long. Here is a photo of some I found (southern England) a couple of weeks ago (Porcini, Porcini Nero, chanterelles, Oyster mushrooms, Hedgehog mushrooms & Orange Birch bolete) - so they are definitely there to be found. Hopefully this will help inspire you to continue.

I've never found any mushrooms either. Of course, I wouldn't know what I'd found if I did, but it would be nice to have the opportunity to be clueless...
