This book gives a basic and broad but innovative view of autism.
It seeks to rupture stereotypes and stigmas and starts with the story and paintings of the artist Camila Falchi, who has an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Camila's art is evidence of the complexity of her internal world and its variety of themes, intensity of feelings, daydreaming, fantasy, and dreams. This complexity compels us to question and rethink our perceptions of the autism spectrum, the mind, and creativity. As a neurologist and a neuroscientist, our goal with this book is to disseminate knowledge about autism, its characteristics, and potentials by means of the example of this artist.
