La Sportiva 90th Anniversary Storytelling
The La Sportiva “Strange Heroes” miniseries goes ahead and after meeting with Jacopo Larcher, reveals the monster within the climbing legend Patxi Usobiaga.
The company from Ziano di Fiemme goes ahead with its new web series that aims to find out what really drives a climber to constantly push beyond limits. The series, created in collaboration with the Sfelab creative studios, is a combination of computer graphics and comic strips and draws inspiration from the LaSpokids series. La Sportiva drives straight to the heart of the climber to discover the monster within, which personifies the motivation that encourages climbers to constantly improve their performance, the driving force that allows them to reach beyond limits.
In the first episode we saw La Sportiva’s polyvalent athlete Jacopo Larcher, come face to face with his own “demon”… a monstrous octopus that attempts to hold him back as he climbs. Now, for its second chapter we flight to Catalonia meeting with the climbing legend Patxi Usobiaga, that faces this challenge while training in his own gym, the ideal place to overcome particular personal challenges both in climbing and in life.
