I heard from folks in Italy this morning, who have put together a short presentation on autism. It’s in Italian, so if you don’t fully grasp the meaning, consider yourself forgiven.

The even more interesting part of all this is that the song they chose, “I Am Me”, was written by Italian children’s book author…the late Leo Lionni. The book was called Pezzetino, the story of a little jigsaw puzzle piece trying to find its place in the world. Isn’t it fascinating that the song would find it’s way back around the world to Italy, and to become part of a video about autism…a topic in many ways akin to the theme of the book?
