"The Fall is a moving portrait of a relationship with a child and a place. It is a rare book: by turns heartbreaking, angry and lyrical". (Edmund de Waal, author of The Hare With Amber Eyes). Step 1: Tito has cerebral palsy. Step 2: I blame Tito's cerebral palsy on Pietro Lombardo. Join Diogo Mainardi and his son Tito in a journey of 424 steps, starting with Tito's disastrous birth in Venice, in Lombardo's Renaissance hospital. It's a journey full of joy and reflection, and an honest exploration of fatherhood. It's a journey that follows the arc of Western culture, from Dante Alighieri, Rembrandt van Rijn and Claude Monet to Marcel Proust, Neil Young and Assassin's Creed, to show how one boy's fate has been shaped by history. Above all, it's a celebration of love and courage, and of the hope and faith we place in our children.
