English term or phrase: Bergamasco
I am translating a text about dogs and need to know how the name of the breed "Bergamasco" should be written in the Italian language. I hesitate between:
- Cane da pastore bergamasco
- Cane da pastore Bergamasco

Explanation:
sono d'accordo con D'Alessandro. Italian does not use capitals to the extent English does. Things are changing, though, under the influence of English, I suppose. On the net you will find all kinds of usages, but in this case I would stick to the manuals: bergamasco is an adjective, so it does not need capitalization.

Buon lavoro

pastore bergamasco


Explanation:
I agree with the second answer (cane da pastore bergamasco), but "pastore bergamasco" is enough, the context is clear, I think it's the best solution.
Do you agree?
Hope it helps

Best regards
