History

These dogs of ancient Italian origin used for bird hunting have modelled themselves and developed over the ages; from the hunting of yesteryear by means of nets, they have adapted themselves to the present hunting and shooting. Frescoes from the 14th century are proof of the indisputable timelessness of the Italian pointer over the centuries, whether either regarding their morphology or aptitude at hunting as pointing dogs.
