The ancestors of the casino performed in the circus arena and were used for hunting. The breed is a close relative of the Cane Corso. The modern type of casino emerged in 1947 through the efforts of the breeder P. Skanziani.
The body is of an extended format, massive, powerful, with a loaded neck with a double chin, deep and voluminous, very powerful chest, sufficiently prominent ribs, wide withers and back, and slightly sloping powerful, wide croup.
The head is short, massive, with a pronounced transition from the forehead to a short muzzle with powerful jaws, a large nose, and drooping, fleshy, thick lips.
