RIVA DEI BUTTERIVia del Buttero, 2
The Campsite Riva dei Butteri takes its name from the closeness to thesea, whose shore (it. riva) is characterized by a wide and long sand beach and by the riding herdsman, the so called Butteri, whose job was to "shield" the cattle, in other words to look after, to follow, to guard and to accompany entire herds of the Maremman cattle and horses that were living in a wild state, to brand them in order to prevent theft. It is narrated that in 1890 the butteros of the Duke Castani di Sermoneta challenged with complete satisfaction of victory the most known and expert herdsman of Buffalo Bill's crew, on tour in Rome.
