An ancient Etruscan origin of the "hunters' salami" (dating back about twenty centuries ago and spread throughout the rest of the country by their immediate descendants, the Romans) justifies the presence of these salamis throughout Italy.
The Cacciatori (or "cacciatorini") were the salamis that the hunter brought with him during the hunt, being a food particularly suitable for this activity with a right dose of fat, supplier of energy, and proteins;
moreover, having a smaller size than the usual salami, it was suitable to carry with you in saddlebags.
