  • "When I see a wall, I don't think anymore about the fear it incutes to me. I just start thinking how I can approach it and go past". Parkour is a discipline that mixes military exercise, sport and urban context. Elisa is a nineteen years old student of informatics, she's little and tiny. You would never guess the power she has inside herself until you see her jumping from a wall to another, walking in balance on a handrail, washing her hands from the dirty smog of the walls of Milan.

    The parkour gave her another personality, made her feel adequate in every circumstances. "I feel different since I started exercising with the other guys of parkour in Milan. It feel like I'm more able to face up responsibilities, to handle with problems, because I'm used to see an obstacle and think how go through it".
