abstract

The paper focuses around a particular legal controversy between a ceremonial system in a South-Central area of Italy, including oxen charts races with horses associated to the ritual competitions and animal rights movements' issues about suspected violence against animals involved in these ceremonials. Ethnographers have been deeply involved in this dispute resolution as experts on community practices and knowledge as well as other scholars in veterinary and animal genetics. The focus of the quarrel has been the ambivalence between local and ‘global hierarchies of value’.
