What drives men and women to risk their own lives to save those of others? Fuoco Sacro tells the story of the Vigili del Fuoco, the Italian fire department, and does it through the voices of the people who, over half a century of history, have tackled with competence and a spirit of self-sacrifice the greatest calamities that Italy has tragically had to experience at firsthand.


The story of the Vigili del Fuoco is closely bound up with the history of Italy. The anxieties, difficulties and risks that the country has faced on the rough road it has traveled have left deep and lasting marks on its collective memory. And it is in these wounds, in these dramas, that the extraordinary generosity of those who have chosen to dedicate their own lives to a mission for others has been able to shine. With Fuoco Sacro I wanted to honor all those men and women who with their love and their skills have made the Corpo Nazionale dei Vigili del Fuoco an example of Italian excellence recognized all over the world.
