The Cane Corso Italiano is a medium-big size dog, strongly built but
elegant, with powerful and long muscles, very distinguished, he
expresses strength, agility and endurance. The general conformation
is that of a mesomorphic animal whose body is longer than the height
at the withers, harmonious as regards the form and disharmonious as
regards the profile. The Muzzle is very broad and deep. The width of
the muzzle must be almost equal to its length which reaches 3.4/10
of the total length of the head. Its depth is more than 50% the
length of the muzzle. Due to the parallels of the muzzle sides and
to the fullness and the width of the whole jaw, the anterior face of
the muzzle is flat and square.

The nasal bridge has a
rectilinear profile and it is rather flat. The lower side profile of
the muzzle is determined by the upper lips, the suborbital region
shows a very slight chisel. The stop is very marked because of the
very developed and bulging frontal sinuses and because of the
prominent superciliary arches. The neck is slightly arched. The neck
shape is of oval section, strong, very muscular. The body is
compact, strong and very muscular. The skin is rather thick.

The
neck is practically without dewlap. The head mustnt have wrinkles.
The pigment of the mucous membranes is black. The pigment of the
soles and the nails must be dark.

The coat of Cane Corso is
short hair but not smooth, with vitreous texture, shiny, adherent,
stiff, very dense, with a light layer that becomes thicker in winter
(but never crops up on the covering hair). Its average length is
approx. 2/2,5 cm. On the withers, the rump, the back margin of the
thighs and on the tail it reaches approx. 3 cm without creating
fringes. On the muzzle the hair is very short, smooth, adherent and
is not more than 1/1,5 cm. Color - Black, plumb-gray, slate, light
gray, blue/gray, light fawn, deer fawn, dark fawn and tubby (very
well marked stripes on different shades of fawn and gray). In the
fawny and tubby subjects there is a black or gray mask only on the
muzzle and shouldnt go beyond the eye line. A small white patch on
the chest, on the feet tips and on the nose bridge is accepted.
