Della Malia starts in 1998 with the arrival of Lia dell'Albera. After a brief correspondence with Maria Andreoli in Vercelli, I find myself in Italy where she takes me to her home where she lives with about 40 Bergamasco's. From young to old, males, females, various colors and beautiful coats dancing, this is great! In a comfortable atmosphere and welcomed by them all. Completely impressed I walk between the crowd of dogs when I arrive in the home where I find even more Bergamasco's. At this moment a dream was born, a future with Bergamasco.
