1988: In 1988 Davio Casartelli with the elephants Tali, Batman and Kanaudy repeated Hannibal\'s crossing of the Alps. 800 km on foot, starting on March 30 from Perpignan in France to arrive in Turin on April 19, making a series of stages with a following of about 100 people. The arrival in Turin took place in the center, in Piazza Castello where a large crowd and the mayor of the city were waiting for them. It was a historic undertaking, which all the media talked about, within a charity marathon in favor of Research against leukemia, called "Ian Botham Hannibal Walk" after its inventor who wanted to re-propose the historic crossing. Documentaries, news reports and articles in print were made. In each city the expedition was awaited by fanfares in historical costumes and a cheering crowd. That charity marathon raised 31 billion lire.
