Butteri on the Farm
Butteri and Tradition ...
The events that we propose want to keep alive the story of this magnificent land: MAREMMA.
Centuries of abandonment have created the “swamp”. In the extensive marshes wandered thousand head of cattle controlled by BUTTERI, men on horseback who shared their hard life with cattle. All of 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 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 show you some of the most important phases of this ancient craft.
