Giacomo Mazzariol

He was born in 1997 in Castelfranco Veneto, where he still lives with his family. In March 2015 he uploaded a short film on Youtube, The Simple Interview, shot with his younger brother Giovanni, who plays the main character. Giovanni has Down syndrome. The video has become unpredictably popular: it has appeared on the front page of the most important newspapers and it has also been discussed abroad. In 2016 Giacomo published his first book, Mio fratello rincorre i dinosauri. Storia mia e di Giovanni che ha un cromosoma in più (Einaudi), which sold more than 150,000 copies, thereby becoming the publishing sensation of the year.
