After the scientific success and the participation of the previous editions, the fifth edition of the Convention of the magazine ‘Psicologia e Scuola’ (School & Psychology) – published by Giunti Scuola – aims at showing the latest results of psychological research and studies related to education psychology including its implications in the school world. Once again, this fifth edition will see the analysis of the classical learning features such as motivations and individualised educational needs, but it will also focus carefully on problems which received particular attention and which saw the birth of original research contributions, such as socialization phenomena, new technology implications, integrative forms of education and the role of assessment systems. Within the convention, emphasis will be put not only on the idea of pupils growing up and learning, but also on educational institutions, on teachers and on the family role. The Congress formula will be the same one applied and appreciated in the previous versions, with its plenary sessions, symposia, side sessions and workshops.

Plenary sessions will see the intervention of famous Italian and international experts. Among them, Sergio Della Sala, renowned for his critical analysis on the role of neuroscience, Giacomo Rizzolatti, who will discuss the educational implications of the discovery of mirror neurons, Paolo Legrenzi, dealing with cognitive science and promoting reasoning abilities, and last but not least, Francesco Tonucci, who encouraged schools to open up to the world in an innovative way, and who will be awarded a Career prize. During workshops, specialists will show how to set up operational events inspired by a psychological research within the school context.

The path towards the Strategic Plan for Tourism Development 2017-2022 starts in Florence. Digital Ecosystems will take place on Friday, 2 December – a public event promoted by MibactMise and the Italian Regions, and created in cooperation with the Region of Tuscany and Toscana Promozione Turistica, during which a common commitment will be identified to develop digitalization in order to promote tourism of Italy as a Destination. The event will also offer an opportunity to elaborate plans and define actions to carry out the Strategic Plan 2017-2022 based on digital tourism. The choice of organizing Digital Ecosystems the day after the end of BTO 2016 is far from being casual. This was specifically organised to create a relationship with the contents of what today is the main event devoted to Online Tourism in Italy, with a vertical insight on innovation by the TDLAB working group, a laboratory created by Mibact in 2014 with the purpose of defining and encouraging the implementation of a digital strategy for tourism in Italy.

Digital Ecosystems will be hosted inside the Cavaniglia Pavilion and will be divided into two sessions. The morning session, upon invitation, will feature speeches by various experts and 15 work tables, while the public afternoon session will be an opportunity to present the results of work tables and show the first implementation steps of the Strategic Plan for Tourism Development 2017-2022 with a special reference to the tourism digitalization, to promote Italy as a Destination.

Over 3,000 physicians took part into the 33rd National Congress of SIMG – the Italian Society of General Medicine and Primary Care at Palazzo dei Congressi. The association was born to promote, enhance and support the professional role of general practitioners, both in the Italian health system and in European and non-European health organizations. Born in 1982, the association – located in Florence – boasts over 100 provincial and sub-provincial sections coordinated at regional level. The key theme of this edition, which also provided the title of the congress, is “Ritorno al Futuro: nuove generazioni, nuove idee e nuove cure per le Cure Primarie del nostro Paese” (Back to the Future – New Generations, New Ideas and New Treatments for Primary Care in Our Country). Among the various topics discussed, the importance of vaccines. It is expected that over 5 million people in Italy might be affected by flu; the number is expected to peak between end of January and early February, so much that the President of the Congress, Dr. Claudio Cricelli, warned:”Vaccines should involve anyone, because the more people get vaccinated, the more everyone will be protected”.

Concerning the cases of meningitis in Tuscany, Cricelli highlighted the importance of antimeningococcal vaccination which, however, does not protect a person for many years. Actually, it has to be repeated every 5 years. “To this extent – continued Cricelli – the Region of Tuscany is working professionally. As general practitioners of SIMG, we remain extremely vigilant and, without sparking unnecessary alarmism, we must try to monitor the situation daily, working closely with the Institutions.”
