Over the years, until today there are many young Sardinians, specifically from Barbagia, who leave their island with the dream of becoming a jockey of the Palio di Siena. My story describes the "professional" life of 5 young people who are currently trying to carve out a place amongst the greatest jockeys of the Palio di Siena.Some of them will soon become leaders while others never will, but that can only be told by time. “Fortza Paris” tries to explain the strong bond that, for sixty years, has linked Sardinia to Siena, a bond made up of horses, culture and tradition.
