Fifty years have passed since the golden age of the western Spaghetti western. The era in which cowboys, Indians, craftsmen, technicians and Italian and Spanish artists lived in different locations in Spain to create, in addition to a profitable economic industry, a real imaginary space. Esplugas City, a western village built 10 kilometers from Barcelona, was one of these places where an authentic cult was born, like Duccio Tessari’s Ringo saga, "Ognuno per sé" by Giorgio Capitani and "Yankee" by Tinto Brass. "Goodbye Ringo" is a reflection on cinema and a movie industry that no longer exists. Through testimonies and revisting the locations, we recollect memories of a now vanished age.
