Road to Polignano: Furore

Alessandro De Rose
Alessandro De Rose makes fourth stop of his journey on the Amalfi Coast

After his dives in Trieste, Porto Venere and Bagni di Lucca, Alessandro De Rose arrived at his final final stop before Puglia, a place famous for high-diving: the Fjord of Furore on the Amalfi Coast. The bridge that he dived from is suspended at 31 metres between two rocky cliff edges overlooking the narrow strip of crystal-clear water in the valley below. It was the first time the Italian had dived from the iconic bridge: "I was very excited before the dive: it was the first time that I have dived from here and 31 metres is more than the competition standard of 27 metres that I am used to. It was definitely excellent training as the World Series in Polignano approaches. The Amalfi Coast is just magical and I can't wait to come back."
