POWER H - Synopsis

The inspiring concept of this book is to tell the lives of the disabled who made History with capital letters, the one that remains sculpted in the annals or in the collective imagination. Not those who broke records or demonstrated "that they can do it", but men and women who, despite their handicaps, have reached the absolute tops in their respective disciplines or arts.

From politics to sport, from music to physics. A series of exceptional lives articulated in about forty portraits: famous people – Homer or Beethoven, Roosevelt or Hawking, Ray Charles or Alex Zanardi – as well as less known to the general public, but for this reason more surprising: from the King Fisher Keeper of the Grail , to the revolutionary French in wheelchair, to the "half men" of American cinema.

Not forgetting those who, through their work or example, through the centuries have made a decisive contribution to the progressive acceptance, integration and, finally, social inclusion of the disabled: from Braille or De l'Epee to unforgettable testimonials as Christopher Reeve or Mohammed Ali.
