Risotto ai funghi (mushroom risotto) is one of my favourites... I love risotto, and I love all sorts of mushrooms!! My suggestion is to mix in some porcini mushrooms along with other shrooms stated, if available. Or you could use just a tiny amount of dried porcini in tiny pieces (soaked in water for a while) and mix it in the stock. The intense flavour of porcini is any shroom lover's dream come true!!
