PALAZZINA DEI BAGNI MISTERIOSI, MILANO

Immersione Libera

Text by Giovanni Paolin, curator of Immersione Libera

Curiosity and excitement pervade our body before we get ready for the immersion, standing still before the surface that we will have to cross: it doesn’t seem to be hiding all that we have been told; only in the end we will realise if it was well worth it. Just one thought: are we equipped enough? All in all, a free dive doesn’t require much, our own selves and some strength to guide us into deep will be enough.
