About the Author

Marco Bardazzi is an Italian journalist and writer. A father of three, he lives with his wife in Milan, where, in 2021, he founded Bea, a strategic communications firm.

In this story of an extraordinary surgeon, author Marco Bardazzi conveys the testimony of an ardent humanity. Enzo was a family man, a tireless worker, faithful only to one thing-friendship with Jesus lived within a vital Christian community. Enzo Piccinini had a truly personal encounter with Jesus, and he lived this experience until the night of the terrible car accident that brought him into the arms of God.

-Angelo Cardinal Scola, Archbishop Emeritus of Milan

In a succession of vivid scenes, Marco Bardazzi immerses the reader in the life of Enzo Piccinini, who planted the seeds of an innovative, patient-centered approach to medical care and promoted an educational program for young doctors focused on service. A role model for the modern physician, he was also a witness to faith for the modern age.

-Lodovico Balducci, M.D.
