A character freely inspired by the scientist Renato Dulbecco from Catanzaro (1914-2012). At a young age the death of his friend Peppino instills in him the realization of the powerlessness of medicine regarding certain diseases and it influences his choices about his future career. He was only 16 years old when he enrolled in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Turin, where he established a fruitful friendship with Rita Levi Montalcini. When Italy came under the control of the German Army he joined the Resistance partisans to offer his professionalism as a doctor. In 1947 he left Italy for the United States and his scientific research led him to discover the mechanism of action of cancer viruses in animal cells, a discovery for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine in 1975. Determined and never satisfied with knowledge, he compared his work as a researcher to the bow of a ship capable of breaking the sea of ignorance.
