PAOLO FONTANI, THE FALCONER
“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
Leonardo da Vinci
I wanted a pair of wings as a child. I spent most of my time watching hawks in flight and conceded their charm. I have always seen the wind like a spell. I love the air and I love flying …
My first hawk was gift from my father when I was eight years old, that was for me my greatest love, my Graal.
At the age of ten I was flying hawks, falcons and buzzards. Today is more than forty years that I flight all these wonderful birds.
The love for these birds born from a passion for free flight. A syndrome of Icarus. My goal is the pursue the aesthetics of the flight!
Let me share with you an experience of relaxation made of large and small emotions. We will spend a wonderful day outdoors between the nature in places of great charm in the Tuscan countryside.
