Bramito del Cervo is a unique event that takes place in the Casentino Forest National Park, Italy.

During the event, visitors can observe the fascinating mating behaviors of the large deer population in the park.

This natural phenomenon occurs from mid-September to mid-October, when adult male deer emit powerful roars, known as bramito, to attract females and assert dominance over other males.

The event offers guided evening excursions to witness these incredible displays of nature. Whether you’re a wildlife enthusiast or just looking for a one-of-a-kind experience, the Bramito del Cervo event is a must-see.


The deer population in the Casentino Forest National Park is one of the largest in peninsular Italy.

The bramito, or powerful roar, of the adult male deer during the mating season has long been a part of the region’s natural history.

Conservation efforts and deer reintroduction programs have played a significant role in preserving the species and maintaining the delicate balance of the park’s ecosystem.

The Bramito del Cervo event not only provides a unique opportunity to witness these majestic creatures but also raises awareness for the importance of their conservation and the protection of their natural habitat.
