Sunday was a glorious morning. Mist surrounded our place early in the morning and as it cleared we became aware of the sounds of the local hunt doing their thing across the valley. It felt like we had been transported to England.
Fox hunting was, in fact, introduced into Italy around 1850 by the english and is popular in both Lazio and Tuscany. These days they chase a scent rather than a fox but that certainly didn’t, from what we could see, dampen the enthusiasm of the participants.
I wonder what “tally ho” is in Italian?
