The authoress analysed a discussion about the origin of the Spanish corrida within the perspective of theses about its native (Iberian) character and attempts at undermining the vision of Europe as a world which 'since time immemorial' has witnessed globalisation (the migrations of people and animals, the dissemination of cultural contents, trade exchange, war conflicts, colonisation and political impact). Prime reflections pertain to the cultural identity of 'toro bravo' within the context of the presence of the bull in the mythologies, religions and art of numerous cultures (the Mediterranean basin).
