bastone da passeggio

The approx. 90cm long “bastone da passeggio” (walking stick) uses techniques strongly related sabre fencing and was most likely developed for the needs of the elegant gentlemen of the 19th century.
The Techniques are very strong but also fluent. Combined with the proud body posture and the profiled linear stance that is needed in the narrow streets of Genoa, this method of self defense shows a very high level of elegance.
