Hello fellow horse lovers!

Benozzo Gozzoli, The cavalcade of the Magi (detail)
Palazzo Medici Riccardi – Firenze

Even if as a journalist I work in the field of politics, since the beginning of my career, I continued to deal with literature and history. In recent years I have devoted myself to the study of treatises about horsemanship. In the course of this work, I have seen how  historians have so far rather neglected the study of these kind of works and, more generally, have paid little attention to the crucial role that the horse has played in the history of civilization. Similarly, I found that many of the publications on these topics are tainted by methodological flaws, clichés and partisanship.

So, in collaboration with my friend Sue Chiverton, I thought it might be useful to propose some hints on the history of equitation, trying not to bore readers with big words, but at the same time providing reliable information and showing images of interest to all who love the horse.

Thank you! I appreciate the time it takes to research what most feel is obscure. I have shared on FB and hope that my friends and students will enjoy as well. If you need any information about the California Vaquero, please let me know!

Dear Jess,

I’m very glad you like it. At the moment the site is in a pause, because I’m working on the translation of my book in English. I hope it will be published in the US by the end of the year. But in the next weeks I will surely post new articles. So we’ll keep in touch. Thank you very much for your appreciation. Ciao!
