VARAZZE – It all began on a sunny summer’s day at a fair in Varazze, a seaside town on Liguria’s Riviera di Ponente. That was where two-year-old Diego met Nadia Ghigliotto, 27. It was love at first sight. Nadia tells us: “It was a fantastic thrill to meet this little boy. I wanted to do something for him and for those who love him so I wrote the song that night, lyrics and melody”. Diego has spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a disease that affects the nerves going to the muscles. He is in a wheelchair, a very small one.

He is more independent”.
