Book Cafè: “Quando fai la chemio le zanzare non ti pungono”

What happens in a person’s life when a sudden diagnosis changes the game, striking directly the brain, the organ that this person is passionate and knowledgeable about? And when the recipient of this test is a renowned life coach, accustomed to facing life’s challenges?

On Thursday 11th April, at the Campus Bar has been presented the book: “Quando fai la chemio le zanzare non ti pungono” by Gianfranco Damico – a well-known author in the field of self-help. In his book Damico finds himself facing a challenge that tests not only his knowledge but also his resilience. As he struggles to navigate unfamiliar territory, his own expertise becomes a valuable guide.

Professor Marco Riva – Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at Humanitas University also joined the conversation alongside Damico.

In this extraordinary tale of hope and transformation, it is possible to discover how a man who has dedicated his life to guiding others toward well-being finds the strength to apply his own lessons as he ventures into the unknown.
