Origin and diffusion

Campana breed of uncertain origin, perhaps related to the Neapolitan Goat. Some morphological characters put it in direct relation with African goats that arrived in the Campania region in historical times. It is widespread in a point-like manner in a vast area comprising many provinces of Campania. Some garments are kept at Consdabi (Consortium for Experimentation, Dissemination and Application of Innovative Biotechnics).
