There are lives that flow, seemingly normal. And then there are exceptional lives. What is most surprising about Carlo’s story is how he managed to be profoundly original: offering everyone who knew him the portrait of an exceptionally smiling normality.
Carlo was a boy like any other, and at the same time, he did extraordinary things. Without apparent effort, without any contradiction. He played the saxophone and, still very young, taught catechism to children. He played soccer with his friends, and an hour later, he would be volunteering at the soup kitchen of the Capuchins and Mother Teresa’s nuns for the poor.
