“Diversity is in everyone”


Every person bring with himself a treasure to discover,

an originality that became us, unique and diverge

Vittorina Gementi (1931-1989), Founder of Casa del

Recent scientific study (2008) has shown that in Italy:
1 out of 500 new births carries brain paralisis
1 out of 700 is affected by the DOWN syndrome.
1 in every 500 children has hearing disturbances at birth.


"These persons are not in a position to call out for their rights and cannot make their voices heard. It is exactly for this purpose that we must remember that they have an absolute right to save their human faculty high to the advantage of the community as a whole.”
(Vittorina Gementi)
