In France the dream of the "Baron in the trees"
More than 1000 balloonist pilots to enter the "Guinness Book of Records" - VIDEO
From July 26 to August 4, over 1000 hot air balloon pilots gathered in Hagéville in France for the "Grand est mondial air ballons": today on July 29, 500 balloons from around the world will try to enter the Guinness Book of Records and beat the historical take-off record in one hour of 433 hot air balloons, which was reached in 2017.
A poetic image, rich in color, which refers to the dream of Italo Calvino: in "Baron in the trees" Cosimo flyes clinging to a hot air balloon.
In Italy, one of the most important balloon events is the "Ferrara Balloons festival" which will take place this year in the Emilia Romagna city from 6 to 15 September 2019. Not to mention the important "Mondovì Meeting" organized annually by the local aerostatic club.
