The Bracco Italiano is also known as Italian Pointer. They originated in Italy during the 1700's.

The breed is thought to originate from crosses made to the sighthounds imported into to Italy by Phoenician traders from Egypt and is the ancestor of all European pointers. This was a popular hunting dog during the Renaissance and was often gifted from the Italian government officials to foreign VIP's. It was used to hunt with nets and to flush quarry for falconers. Although its popularity declined during the 1800's it is now enjoying a revival in its native Italy.
