The Fortezza da Basso in Florence is the name of the fortress that hosts the Fitfestival, the most important, long-awaited fitness festival in its twentieth edition. The castle-walls and the towers are like soldiers of the Folgore with ropes and rope-ladders ready for the "assault on the fort". It seems that even the showgirl Seredova has participated in the enterprise; but otherwise, "anatomical" graces being shown off aren't the main thing. Better to proceed on towards the entrance, where brochures about safe sex are distributed. Not that it's a bad thing, good heavens no, but it's like saying smoking is bad for your health in a chocolate store, seeing as the fitness festival is made out to be the anti-sex, anti-eroticism fair - a joyous war machine battling against cellulite and stretch marks; an aerobics course of autogenous training for feeling good: physically, socially and in a bathing suit.
