Human towers have been one of the most important cultural traditions in the region of Catalonia, in Spain, for more than 200 years and have become part of the identity of Catalan people. For their success, a crowded and stunning structure of hundreds of men, children and women needs to be perfectly set up. This is the visual story of those who live the human towers from inside, those who are not seen. Those who feel the tower… without seeing it.
