INTRODUCTION TO ‘IL CANE CORSO’

                              by Stefano Gandolfi  Heraclitus said “even the gold diggers dig much earth:
                                                   and they find little.”
                                                   So it was for those who, alongside with me, were en-
                                                   gaged in the research of the Cane Corso.
                                                   A dog that is part of our roots and our history.
                                                   The time, the passion and the dedication profuse in the
                                                   difficult and long recovery of the breed, brought us to-
                                                   gether.
                                                   The disappointments, the difficulties, but also the
                                                   friendships, the involvement and the enthusiasm of the
                                                   many people we dragged in our momentum, brought
                                                   us together.
                                                   To all of them I would like to dedicate the English edi-
                                                   tion of this book.
                                                   A special mention goes to the co-author of this book,
                                                   Prof. Fernando Casolino who left us in November
                                                   2015. To him we owe the search for lost memories, sto-
                                                   ries and customs of a past that lives in the present.
                                                   His memory will remain forever engraved in these pag-
                                                   es as well as in my heart and in the hearts of all those
                                                   fortunate enough to have had the privilege of meeting
                                                   him on their way.
                                                   « Forsan et haec olim meminisse iuvabit. »
