Piero Guccione was born on May 5, 1935 in Scicli, Sicily, Italy. He was a production designer, known for Norma (1990), Auguri Don Gesualdo (2010) and Se hai una montagna di neve, tienila all'ombra (2010). He died on October 6, 2018 in Modica, Sicily.
The "Associazione AmicidiSean"—FriendsofSean Association—was founded to support Sean Hadfield and other people with his condition. Sean is a 24-year-old man who, at the age of 9, suffered an irreversible spinal cord injury, leaving him in a wheelchair. Due to the injury, he needs 24-hour care, which carries a high financial cost.
The objective of the association is to offer people with disabilities the highest quality of life possible with all the necessary care needed. The FriendsofSean Association also commits itself to giving a percentage of its funds raised to the Hospital Nacional de Paraplejicos de Toledo in Spain.
