Association for rare diseases mauro baschirotto l.jpg
Association for Rare DiseasesMAURO BASCHIROTTO

  • The Association was founded by Anna and Giuseppe Baschirotto in 1989, to remember the suffering endured by their beloved son Mauro, who died at the age of sixteen, two years earlier.


Association for rare diseases mauro baschirotto purposes l.jpg
Association for Rare DiseasesMAURO BASCHIROTTOPurposes:

  • Epidemiological studies.

  • Consultation and assistance service for patients and their families.

  • The formation of task-forces for specific diseases, like Metachromatic Leucodystrophia, Lesch-Nyhan Disease, Spinal Muscular Dystrophy and APECED.

  • Starting up an Institute for Scientific Biomedical Research into rare diseaseas at Costozza di Longare (Vicenza).


First step forming the group of families l.jpg
First step: forming the group of families

  • How to find them?

  • How many families in Italy?

  • TV and radio programmes, newspapers, magazines,…


Second step spreading information l.jpg
Second step: spreading information

Since the Association understood the importance of exchanging information and of communication, the tale “An (Im)Possible Life” was published as means of awakening public opinion and as a source of fund-raising

Third step: supporting research

1997 Prof. Giacomello and Prof. Micheli’s research

1999 Dr De Gregorio’s work at La Jolla
