The successful programme "Down in 60 seconds – Adrenaline at high altitude" will be broadcast on Italia1, starting on Sunday, 5 November, at about 11:50 am.
The 5 episode series is again hosted by the radio personality Vic who will challenge 5 famous celebrities to stretch their limits by jumping out, in pairs, for their first time, with a parachuting instructor. The entertaining and multiple award-winning Mak and Delpo are the senior instructors who will accompany the guests on the jump.
The VIPs who have accepted this heart pounding challenge are: "La Bonas" Paola Caruso, the Colorado comedian "Scintilla" - Gianluca Fubelli, the Olympic judoka gold medalist Fabio Basile, the water polo champion Amaurys Pérez and the actress Jane Alexander.
These first-time jumpers will participate in a breathtaking training, suspended in the air, in the biggest vertical tunnel on the planet: the free fall simulator of the Fastweb Aero Gravity centre of Milan.
Finally, the next day they will jump for the first time from an altitude of 400 meters in the prestigious and scenic Campovolo di Fano: a tandem jump with a parachute, lasting an endless 1 minute of pure adrenaline, 60 seconds that will be remembered as an unforgettable experience under the Fastweb brand.
