The Modena is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding. Modenas along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons are all descendants from the Rock Pigeon (Columba livia). The breed comes in many different colors, in two main varieties, Gazzi and Schietti. Gazzi is a pied marking with the head and portion of the throat, the wings and the tail colored and the rest of the bird being white. Schietti's are non-pied birds with the majority of the bird being only one color.
