In a small town perched in the mountains of Abruzzo, a unique competition has been held for centuries. Every year, in Pacentro, locals throw themselves from a cliff onto scree slopes where they run down to the stream, before running back up. The first to enter the church wins the so-called Corsa degli Zingari. An ancestral rite, the origins of which are unknown, participants of the Corsa are tied to the indissoluble relationship between nature and man.
