This is how it begins - on the trail of an old, rusty train track - the documentary film produced by Slam in homage to Barcolana, the biggest regatta in the world, which has been decorating the Gulf of Trieste with cheery white sailing boats for the past 50 years.
This 40-minute history is narrated by someone who was born and bred in Barcola. A place where children inherit a true love from their grandparents, a passion for the sea. Barcola natives are born “in” the sea, they never tire of looking at it, listening to it, thanking it. They only feel truly alive when they are out there. First there were the fishing boats, then the tourist boats, followed by fibreglass boats, in so-called “celluloid”.
