Diogo Mainardi has written a book for his teenage son who has cerebral palsy. The book is a journey of 424 steps that start with Tito’s disastrous birth in Lombardo’s Renaissance hospital, Venice. Along the way he describes the Western culture that surround them, from the words of Dante and Proust, to the art of Rembrandt and Monet, to the music of Neil Young and the games they play like Assassin’s Creed, to show how this one boy’s fate has been shaped by history. This is a celebration of love and courage, and of the hope and faith we place in our children. Here he tells us why he decided to write a book for his son Tito.
