Butteri once upon a time ...

Butteri show

The events that we propose want to keep alive the history of this magnificent land: MAREMMA.

Centuries of abandonment have created the “swamp”. Thousands of cattle controlled by BUTTERI, uomini a cavallo che condividevano con il bestiame la loro vita durissima. men on horseback who shared their hard life with cattle.
That until the Agrarian Reform of the 1950s, abolishing the large estates, decreed the end of wild farms and therefore of Buttero. Rare companies keep their tradition today …
For many years, on the farm, where we still breed Maremma cows and horses in freedom, a show has been taking place with the i Butteri that intends to re-propose, at the traditional level, the work of the Buttero,a classic figure of the Maremma of the past.

The Buttero was the one who followed and cared for “wild” cattle, that is, free, from sunrise to sunset, riding his horse, a faithful friend and life partner.
Butteri del Marruchetone” will demonstrate you some of the most important phases of this ancient craft.
