The "botticella" is one of the symbols of the Eternal City, a bit like the Gondolas in Venice. A horse-drawn carriage that takes tourists around the historic center of Rome.
The first botticellari came from Molise and thanks to their experience with the animals, they were hired as grooms. The main horse sheds were in Borgo and Via Sannio. Then they passed to the role of "botticellari", that is, drivers of the famous Roman wheelchairs.
Today, to travel, to the small trot in carriage, the streets of Rome, the same roads that often and hastily we are obliged to "furrow" with motorcycles and cars .... it creates magic and suddenly the city speaks and with it all that lives in it, while the horse goes, with rhythmic cadence punctuated by the noise of the hooves on the pavement.
