The biography of the best climber in history seems to be taken from a children's story about a prince of the people. Born in anonymity to a humble family on the Adriatic coast, Pantani reached the height of fame, wealth and the devotion of millions of tifosi at the age of 29, before sinking in the most dramatic and resounding way imaginable. A blood test that gave a value outside the norm, two days after the conclusion of what had to be his second triumphant Giro d'Italia, was enough to throw the messiah of cycling into the abyss of discredit, persecution and self-destruction. Who was his manager for five years, Manuela Ronchi, narrates in this intimate and overwhelming book the rise and fall of a myth.
