Cinta Senese is a valuable breed of swine, whose name comes from the typical white band crossing the black shiny mantle of each animal. The strong and quick limbs, a sharp sense of smell, the capability to be grazing, are the characteristics that allow this species to grow wild. Its presence is documented by a great deal of texts as well as paintings and frescoes of Sienese School. We can admire, among many examples, a specimen of "Cinta Senese" depicted by Lorenzetti in his "Effetti del Buongoverno" inside the Town Palace of Siena.
