Willpower is always fundamental for achieving any goal. On 22 August 2002, Renato Brignone, a phocomelic from birth, managed to climb to the top of Mt. Rosa with his crutches and the help of some friends. "You can do anything if you want to. And thanks to the person who gives you a hand. Because there is always someone who can give you a hand".
These are his words on the summit, inspired by the understandable satisfaction for having realised a dream at long last.
