OLTRE I CONFINI è un luogo in cui non avresti mai pensato di andare, è ciò che scopri dall’altra parte una volta superata la barriera.

OLTRE I CONFINI è curiosità, aspettativa, incertezza, paura ed eccitazione per quello che potrai trovare e quali conseguenze potrebbe avere.
È anche consapevolezza che per saperlo ci sia un modo solo.

Vieni con noi.

Luca Errani

Luca Errani is a courageous father. His daughter Chiara has a cognitive disability and complex communicative needs.
