In a small town perched in the mountains of Abruzzo, a unique competition has been held for centuries. Every year, in Pacentro, local men throw themselves from a cliff made of living rock, and run down to the stream, before running back up. It is a cruel race, which is run barefoot. The first to enter the church wins the so-called Corsa degli Zingari. An ancestral rite, the origins of which are unknown, in which people take part for spiritual or material reasons, tied to the indissoluble relationship between nature and man.
