On October 4th 1630 in Cupertino, in the church of the Poor Clares Monastery a miracle happened, destined to remain unique in history. A friar, Joseph, caught up into a mystic ecstasy, lifted in flight. This was the beginning of the incredible experience of Saint Joseph of Cupertino, “the flying friar”.

We will retrace his life among the ecstasies and daily levitations that appointed him to sanctity but at the same time condemned him to solitude and shame.
We will try to understand how his flights could be possible and what really happened during this phenomenon.

From Assisi to Pietrarubbia, then to Fossombrone and finally to Osimo, where in the silence of a poor cell, on September 18th 1663 Friar Joseph took his last flight.
