The Italian Institute of Culture in Montreal and the Department of Veterinary Sciences of the University of Turin are pleased to present the webinar series entitled “And Man met the horse”. The horse has followed the life of men and civilizations, since the dawn of time. Originally from the Eurasian steppe, at first it provided man with meat, milk and skins and only in the metal age did it become a protagonist among draft animals and prince for horse riding, marking memorable moments in military and sporting history. His part in literature and art has always been central, that of the noble animal, reflecting the interests and passions of peoples. The figurative arts have represented its beauty in every age: from the equine figures left by primitives on the walls of prehistoric caves to the horses of the admirable equestrian monuments of the Italian Renaissance.
The webinar series “And Man met the horse”, created with Prof. Domenico Bergero, Director of the Department of Veterinary Sciences of the University of Turin, develops in a program rich in scientific, cultural, historical- artistic, sports… and many other curiosities: all entrusted to the words and knowledge of Italian scientists and scholars.
