About this title


This book is not only an autobiography of Pelizzari, but also an incredible reflection on man s constant and irrepressible urge to exceed the limits imposed on him by nature, to experience new sensations and to go deep within himself in search of a freedom that knows no boundaries. Captivating images accompany a vivid narrative of the records and adventures that defined Pelizzari s life and sporting career: from the beginnings in the pool, to the discovery of his own ability, the training, the teamwork, acquaintances with the historic figures of the underwater world such as Mayol and Maiorca as well as the simple folk of the seas who live their lives in contact with the water, the victories, world records, and freedives in seas all over the world, and the encounters with the magnificent sea creatures that inhabit them. Page after page, Pelizzari relives the experience of his inner journey in the depths of the sea.

About the Author:

Umberto Pelizzari was born in 1965. In 1984 he began his career as a competitive freediver, setting his first world record in static breath hold, with a time of 5 33 . In 1990 he graduated in informatics at the University of Milan, and the same year he debuted in the world of depth with a record Constant Weight dive to 65 meters (213 feet), beating the record held by the Cuban Francisco Pipin Ferreras. In 1991 he conquered all the freediving world records, and continued to improve on his performances in the subsequent years. He ended his competitive career in Capri, in 2001, with a Variable Weight record of 131 meters (430 feet). Pelizzari never failed in a career that saw him set 16 freediving world records. He was the only freediver to have established world records in all the depth disciplines, and the first man to reach the depth of 150 meters (492 feet). Pelizzari now works as a journalist and television reporter for a popular Italian scientific documentary program that focuses on the marine environment. He is also the creator of the Apnea Academy school for the instruction and research of freediving on an international level.
