Pratomagno a dream in the Casentino

The Pratomagno is an imposing ridge, its summit reaches 1598 meters above sea level and divides the Casentino from the Valdarno. On the top a large iron cross built on 2 September 1928, visible even from great distances. The panorama that can be enjoyed from this mountain is certainly one of the most beautiful in Italy, on clear days you can see the Apuan Alps in the North-West direction, Monte Amiata and the peaks that divide Umbria to the South South-West. from the Marche. Pearl nestled between its slopes is the village of Raggiolo. 

From my window the Pratomagno is there in front of it, and it is since I was little that I dreamed of doing it, flying on its top caressing its wonderful and gigantic lawn.

The realization of this video and of the photo gallery below was inspired not only by the news of the imminent restoration of the cross, but also and above all in honor of the great flyer Herbert John Louis Hinkler (Bert) who crashed 80 years ago on the top of Pratomagno near proper to his Cross

This is the reason for the importance of having fixed these beautiful images in this year 2013.

Making the video presented many difficulties as I use a paramotor to fly, for the uninitiated the smallest of all ultralights. The success of the project was also the result of the excellent knowledge of the aerology of my Valley, the Casentino, and the long experience gained in years of flying. A respectful greeting, however, to this immense mountain, which together with my faithful flight and adventure companion Daniele Gerini, gave me a wonderful experience, an unforgettable day of life!

The reason to fly with this type of aircraft is also in the frames of this small video. A sport that becomes an adventure game, emotion .... a lifestyle and above all friendship .. !!!
I always tell everyone: PARAMOTOR IS LIFE !!
