A carbon brace, developed by @fabrifisio, will accompany me in my recovery path.

I don’t want to leave any stone unturned to be at @giroditalia, we are doing our best. But we need patience, lucidity and a enough caution before making any decision. Every day from now until May 8 will be precious 🦈

🇮🇹 Da oggi un tutore in carbonio, elaborato da @fabrifisio, mi accompagnerà nel mio percorso di recupero.

Non voglio lasciare nulla di intentato per essere al @giroditalia, stiamo facendo il massimo. Ma serve pazienza, lucidità e una buona dose di cautela prima di prendere qualsiasi decisione. Ogni giorno, da qui all’8 maggio, sarà prezioso 🦈
