The 20th Congress of the Italian Hospital Pulmonologists Association (Aipo) will take place at the Fortezza da Basso from 13th to 16th November 2019. Four non-stop days for an exhaustive update on new therapies and treatments to deal with diseases of the respiratory system, which represent the third cause of death after cardiovascular disease and cancer. Actually, their impact is increasingly growing, also because of factors such as smoke, air pollution and a progressive ageing of the population.

“Italian pulmonology is strong and has to confront itself with the rest of the world. We have to take into consideration progress and the new frontiers introduced by globalisation”, says Venerino Poletti, President of Aipo and of the congress. “This is why the congress will see the participation of international speakers, who will offer the perspective of the other organisations we have to discuss with”.

“Respiratory diseases have a substantial impact on people’s life quality. That is why patients should have access to all treatments which can keep them under control”, commented Albino Sini, member of the Italian Non-Profit Association of COPD Patients, adding: “Our purpose is to inform citizens, patients and family members, encouraging all social and health measures which can improve patients care, as well as adopting all measures aimed at an efficient prevention action. However, it will be a long and difficult process”.

Over 25,000 people participated in the exhibition and in the training events of the third edition of DIDACTA ITALIA, which took place from 9th to 11th October at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence. Once again, this Fair proves to be the reference event to talk about school innovation.

The exhibition closed with the following figures: 16,712 hours of certified training for teachers, 762 total events, 12,036 online bookings received before the event, over 200 exhibitors on a surface of 31,000 square metres and 160 accredited journalists.  Excellent results also came from online attendance.

“These figures confirm that Fiera Didacta is a reference for school. In a way, we provide a public service, since teachers can access free top-level training, thanks also to the institutions which invested in this event and to the over 200 companies which showed that future school is already happening. That is why we are already working on the 2020 edition, to be held from 28th to 30th October, putting Florence and the Fortezza da Basso at the heart of the school educational path in our country”, said Leonardo Bassilichi, President of Firenze Fiera.

“The third edition of Didacta – said Giovanni Biondi, President of Indire – ended with a very positive outcome in terms of participation and events offered. By promoting the school of tomorrow, we built a model which could be told and directly experienced by teachers and school officials. The great attention received by the world  of politics, by the majority of the national press and also by international media, such as the BBC, proves that the road taken is the right one, so that innovation will become a crucial subject of discussion for a real change in Italian schools”.

Participants gave their approval using the Fiera Didacta app, with 87% expressing their maximum satisfaction. The events and the exhibiting area devoted to technological innovation were particularly appreciated.
