From this time comes the Corso word,
which some assimilate as a corcega, but comes from the Latin cohors,
which means brave, manly, strong.
so the ancestors described the cane corso, there were also popular sayings at that time,
(it is worse than a bite of corso cane ..) therefore it was a powerful dog and that was sought in the virtue of ferocity,
both for battle like big game.
