Italian text

The world of hunting has no secrets for Piero Cilotti, who spent his entire life learning its tricks and traditions.
After travelling throughout Italy and meeting many important landowners, he collected his memories in this book where, starting from his experiences as a hunter, describes with a genuine and captivating style the economic, social and cultural changes occurred in our country from the 50s onwards. Reading his story we enter into a forgotten past, and discover traditions and customs of a long gone culture, where many characters the author had the chance to meet, and often became close friends with stand out.
So in the story of a life spent "between partridges and wild boars", we can find the unique record of an epoch.

With many references to the aristocratic families, it will impress the constant public of the hunters, and not only the Tuscan ones. Coming out is also a new release of an interesting essay on the evolution of rural culture from the beginning of the Twentieth century, with some good recipes.
