The Falconry at Castello di Baccaresca
It’s in the sky of Umbria, as blue as few are when it stands out in the intense green of its hills, that you can admire the superb flight of the hawk: animal symbol, since the Middle Ages, of that royalty that Frederick II has helped to consecrate in the European courts through the his far-sighted studies on falconry.
This ancient practice, dated in the second millennium b.C. among the peoples of the Far East, continues to be practiced, even today, in the uncontaminated landscapes of our region where the ancient Castle of Baccaresca rises.
Released by the only hunting constraints, falconry today takes on naturalistic characteristics that exalt the symbiotic relationship between man and this marvelous bird of prey: this is the reason that induces every observer, as well as every practitioner of this art, to feel part of performance from the old and modern charm at the same time.
The time of a flight to go where only the great birds of prey are able to reach through the power of their wings, and of a return to the friend’s arm that awaits them: always leaning towards the blue sky, the uncontaminated realm of the hawk, and of the human gaze.
