“Manimal” is a reflection about relationship between man and animal. The word “animal” derives from Latin “animal-animalis” which alludes to the faculties of each animal being to possess soul. The development of capitalism, based on the concept according to which everything is a product with a price, has contributed to the abandonment of any symbolic and spiritual approach to nature, humans and animals. Various ancient mythological beliefs conceive animal like deity or privileged being of connection to God, bearer of adversities or fortune; the cancellation of myths and traditions by the European bloody colonizers in Africa and South America, atheism, distorted interpretations of religious texts to political and economic aims, the birth of capitalism and the gradual advance of the cultural massification thank to the expansion of globalization has determined the process according to which animal can be treated like object. Does this contemporary man behaviour depend on a wrong cultural “evolution” (if the today’s involution can called “evolution” yet) or does it exist an innate tendence or a brotherhood feeling of man to conceive animal as a being who, while provided of soul, must be respected and helped? This reportage is narrating the experience of a hawk trainer and about a rodeo during an event, the Road Show, in which Italian cowboys on horses must capture as cows as possible with a jest.
