Officially born in October 1993, A.T.I.MA.NA. responds to the demands of the main European national Clubs which represent the interests of the Neapolitan Mastiff in their respective Countries, and it is the first, and as yet the only, international association for an Italian Breed.
A.T.I.MA.NA. intends to respect fully national and internationai regulations as provided by the various Kennel Clubs and the F.C.I. - itself.
To this end, we inaugurated the annual A.T.I.MA.NA. championships, which are held in the various member countries in rotation, which offer a verification and a comparisons of technical and sporting interest, in parallel with the annual ”International Scientific Conference on the Neapolitan Mastiff”, which aims to consolidate our knowledge of the main pathologies and health problems which affect the Breed, and thereby to scarch for a solution to them.
A.T.I.MA.NA. is advised in its activity by internationally recognised Scientific Consultants specialising in the Breed, furnishing an exchange of experience which is certainly of benefit to breeders or simple enthusiasts.
In all these initiatives, a role of primary and fundamental importance is carried out by the Clubs affiliated to A.T.I.MA.NA., which are, increasingly, the true backbone of the organisation.
