One day Franco Magnani picked up a paintbrush. We go to Pontito, Italy, the village where Franco grew up and that inspired his paintings. Neurologist Oliver Sacks describes Franco’s work as “not just an exercise in memory; it was, equally, an exercise in nostalgia.”

You can see some of Franco’s paintings on his website.
