Archures Mattia Moratore, a wheelchair hockey champion, surprises everyone with the publication of his first book, “I Was Born This Way, But Don’t Tell Me It,” with a special preface entrusted to Luciano Legapo. At 37, suffering from dysgenesis or crystal bone disease, he wanted to write about his disability with that sarcasm that has always distinguished him and the stubbornness that made him captain of the Monza Sharks and the National Team Hockey Team’s power chair, a 2018 World Champion graduate.
“I confess that I have always been writing since I was a child because I have always loved to do it – this book published with Chiarelettere was born in a very natural way,” said Mradour. At work, I tell stories about disabled people, emphasizing both the problems and the advantages of living in this condition ».
The new author, who in everyday life works as an administrative employee at the University of Milan Bicocca, is keen to stress that “this is not an autobiography, but a collection of different life experiences, personal and those of other friends and acquaintances. In these pages you will never find piety or skill ( A cultural model similar to racism and sexism and discriminates against people with disabilities.) Despite our disability, we live our lives quietly.”
He also had many successes in various fields, so much so that Muratore remains an absolute reference, for example in hockey.
“I Was Born This Way, But Don’t Tell Me” will be published in online stores from January 20th, and the book also contains an introduction to singer-songwriter Ligabue.
“For me it was a great touch on the cake – admit the 37-year-old law graduate – I’ve always been a fan of Luciano, I saw my first concert in ’92 when I was only 8 and it’s always thanks to him if I meet my partner Erika Micheletti When the editor asked me who could write the foreword to my script, I just thought of Ligabue. With some connections we managed to get to him and I hope he enjoys my reading.”
The Correggio artist, invested in this important role, wrote to Moradour: “I know you are as capable of ridicule as few others. I know you are a force of nature. Thanks to your book, the list of things I “know” (and not just about you) has grown. Among the new things I know about you, though, Mattia, there is one thing I want to say: Now I know you write well.
The book is scheduled to be presented on January 29th at 4.30pm at the new cinema in Arcore with Martina Garancini of Sciame Libri, event organizer, and Professor Raffaele Mantegazza.
“I really thank all those who helped and supported me on this journey like Erika, my family, my friends, the publishing house and the Liga.”
