He can’t move his legs
“A few years ago it happened that one morning I wake up and I can’t move my legs anymore. Everything fell apart quickly. The ordeal of visits and diagnoses begins.

Then comes the blinding pains, the cortisone ”. Isabella continues: “One night, it was June 2, they hospitalized me in a hospital close to home, in Rome”.
