The myriad escape strategies, from Binda to Moser, the superhuman strength of the legs, the steel lungs, a team with a captain, a second in command, the domestiques, the sprinter, the technical director, the mechanics. In a worldwide preview, the great era of the Giro d’Italia, as directed by Andrea Gropplero di Troppenburg (Italy, 2018, 60’), is not just that of Coppi and Bartali, but also the story of popular heroes such as Girardengo and Gimondi.
It is passionately recounted by Romano Prodi, Gianni Bugno, Moser, Franco Cordelli, Alessandro Bergonzoni, Giacomo Marramao and Marino Niola: a serene, passionate tribute to Italy’s best-loved sporting event in the year of its 100th edition.
