Brief presentation of Centro Miciolandia®:
Centro Miciolandia® has existed since 2012 as a section of the Speed Dog Center of Perugia, it’s
dedicated to the study of Felis catus and the relationship between the cat and the human being. The
Center is also a place surrounded by nature where cats, humans and other animals live together for
many years. Inside the Center there is a protected feline colony that has existed in this place for
more than twenty years, it can be visited only by appointment and no direct contact with the animals
is allowed in any way without direct supervision of those responsible. The Centro Miciolandia® is
managed in every aspect by Roberta Roscini, she deals with professional and non-professional
training related to the ethological and psychological characteristics of the cat and the relationship of
coexistence between the cat and the human being, she also deals with recovery and rehabilitation of
cats with difficulty, information to the population, Pet Therapy, advice and activities of various
kinds, with the aim of bringing back the naturalness and respect for the needs of species in the
relationship between man and cat. The Centro Miciolandia® is also a large community that
welcomes all the students who attend our courses and accompanies them in their training and work,
ensuring constant updates and insights, as well as support and sharing.

“For more than ten years I have been involved in the study of the nature of domestic cats, I manage
the reality of interspecific coexistence at the Centro Miciolandia® and I advise for the improvement
of the quality of life of cats living with humans and cats living in conditions of freedom more or
less controlled by man. From 2014 I realize, I manage and I present professional training activities,
seminars, workshops, theme days and activities of various kinds to spread a right relationship with
the cat. I regularly work with veterinarians and animal welfare associations in several Italian cities
and I maintain contacts with colleagues in different parts of the world to ensure constant updating to
myself and my students. I am a lover of life in all its forms and I am deeply convinced that in the
shared and conscious knowledge lies the true secret to a more just and respectful world, regardless
of the species of belonging.”

Brief presentation of the method Comunicazione Naturale Gatto-Uomo®:
The Natural Communication Cat-Man® defines a method of approach in the interaction of the
human with the cat animal: this approach is based on the respect of the ethological characteristics of
the cat (Felis catus) and on the use of the human body communication and empathy to create a
natural and spontaneous interaction that leaves freedom of action for all the participants and that
puts the animal in a position to freely express its nature. This method rejects the anthropocentric
vision of the animal. The aim of this approach is to improve the quality of cohabitation between the
human being and the cat animal in the various contexts of daily life and to restore dignity to animal
specificity and to the freedom of natural interspecific communication not conditioned by anthropic
constructs. The Natural Communication Cat-Man® is taught through training courses and
experiential recreational activities. The training course for Operator in Natural Communication Cat-Man® includes several training steps that can be viewed at this page and provides for compliance with an ethical and deontological code that guarantees the seriousness and professionalism of the students who complete the training program.
