The Circolo della Caccia is a gentlemen's club founded in 1869 that brings together representatives of the Roman aristocracy. It is considered among the most exclusive in Italy.
The club is traditionally linked to the white aristocracy, unlike the New Chess Circle, a fiefdom of the papal black aristocracy.
Circolo della Caccia (Roma) History
The club, founded in November 1869, has been located since 1922 on the noble floor of the seventeenth-century Palazzo Borghese, which stands in the old district of Campo Marzio.
The club has 700 members, all men. Among others, King Juan Carlos of Spain, Prince Charles of England, Duke Philip of Edinburgh, Constantine of Greece and King Albert II of Monaco.
The regular appointments are the evening of the wild boar in late February, the Christmas lunch and the presentations of the new members with the speech of the youngest at the end of the evening.
