MYTHS AND REALITY BETWEEN SAN FRANCISCO AND LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD: STORIES OF PASSION AND COEXISTENCE

Will be discussed, described and explaned the different relationships between men and wolves. In the wolf, the “human dimension” of the animal, which is the cultural projection of the wolf in our psyche and in our society, is the largest ever known for an animal. We can not therefore investigate, manage and protect the wolf in nature, apart from the image of the wolf in society.

Dott. Marco Zupan – Naturalist and member of Therion Research Group
