The Romagnol pigeons – also known by the names: Romagnolo, Ромагноли – Romagnolo was named starting from “real” pigeons at the end of the 19th century, most likely derived from ancient Colombo Ascolano and named in the late 1800s by Callisto Ghigi (father of Prof. Alessandro Ghigi, a well-known poultry researcher).
Varieties belonging to this type of utility form pigeons, as their type groups, are bred to meet the needs of meat, especially the culinary market, and are therefore largely farmed by the population, especially in rural areas. This variety is quite popular, and although known to have good flying ability, but practically only developed a very beautiful appearance.
