The Maremmano Horse and the Maremma, two extraordinary Italian beauties. The Maremmano Horse: beautiful, strong, elegant and Maremma, a very beautiful and unique territory with places, monuments, towns and villages to visit.
The Maremmano Horse and the Maremma: of the Maremmano Horse have roots in the territory of the ancient Etruscans in the Maremma and, from then until the mid-1800s, the breed has maintained the same initial characteristics as a rough horse, strong and shady.
Around 1870 he began to cross it with horses of the most gentle and slender appearance and, thanks to the English purebred, came to what is commonly called the new generation with the birth of the stallion Fauno, in 1902 in the real stables of San Rossore, in Tuscany.
Like all horse races, the Maremmano Horse has also undergone further modifications dictated essentially by the man’s working and military needs while endangering extinction in the years following World War II.
You can not speak of the maremma horse without mentioning the butteri, the true guardians of the race that is no longer used to follow the flocks during transhumance but is used in sport.
The Maremmano Horse and the Maremma: now we speak of the Maremma, one of the most beautiful territories in Italy, situated in the beautiful Tuscany and full of towns, villages and beautiful and famous places such as Terme di Saturnia, a lovely spa center at the foot of the medieval village of Saturnia and surrounded by a a secular park typical of the Maremma land. We can not forget Ansedonia, on a small promontory 114 meters above sea level at the point where the Tombolo della Feniglia joins the Maremma Coast and the Argentario, a splendid promontory surrounded by the sea and connected to the coast by the tomboli of Giannella, Feniglia and from an artificial isthmus that corresponds to the dam of Orbetello.
And then not to mention the Island of Giglio, which is reached by ferries departing from Porto Santo Stefano and ensuring connections throughout the year. Here, more than anything, the natural beauties are appreciated: a crystal clear sea among the cleanest in Italy, backdrops with walls and dried colored sponges and gorgones, an extremely varied coastline with cliffs overlooking the west side and smooth granites on east side, sandy beaches, wild coves, ancient paths immersed in a rich nature and breathtaking views, make the Giglio Island a real gem of nature.
