ROCKVILLE V (D/I, 9min)

Inmitten der schier endlosen Felder der Po-Ebene liegt Villa Rocca - eine 20-Seelen-Gemeinde, geprägt von einem 500 Jahre alten, unaufhaltsam verfallenden Schloss. Für einen Tag im Jahr erwacht der morbide und gleichsam magische Ort zum Leben: Ein bunter Haufen radbesessener Italiener macht den Schlosspark zum Singlecrossparcour. Rockville vereint Sportsgeist mit gelebter Passion, mit Stil und Charme, mit Tradition und Zeitgeist.

Charismatische Typen, schöne Räder, gutes Essen - Italienischer Singlespeed-Cyclocross aus der Sicht zweier deutscher Filmemacher.

Amidst the seemingly endless fields of the Po Valley lies Villa Rocca –a 20 people strong community, dominated by a 500-year-old, inexorably crumbling castle. For one day a year, the morbid and almost magical place comes to life. A colorful bunch of velophile Italians convert the castle grounds into a single speed cyclocross course.
