Italian film director Lucia Marani was immediately captivated when her father began telling her about a man he met the day after Christmas in 2007. The man was riding his bike in the pouring rain along the Tyrrhenian coastline.

"My father told me about this ex-Olympian baseballer for Italy, Italian-American, struck with (multiple sclerosis), preparing for a legendary bike race in France. I was already captured by his story," she said.

Marani's father had met Penn Hills native Tony Lonero, who has dual citizenship and has lived in Italy since the late 1980s.

Marani is hoping that Italian and American film audiences will be equally captivated by her documentary "Ride to Finish," about Lonero's extraordinary life.

Diagnosis: Jan 2010, OMS April 2010.
I have just come across this (while searching for tips on eating while traveling in Italy!). My good friend at work has just told me about this man and the story yesterday! Strange how things work sometimes. I hope positive stories will keep showing themselves up to us every now and then...
