FESTIVAL DELLA SCIENZA MEDICA

A completely renewed edition
From 2 to 17 October, weekly livestreams of conferences, meetings and lectures will tackle critical questions surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic from diverse points of view: from a strictly medical-scientific perspective to the social and economic repercussions. Our objective is to uncover new insights into the evolving relationship between Medical Sciences and Society.

2020’S THEME - COVID-19. LESSONS FOR MEDICINE

Should it last an extended period and produce repeated outbreaks, the Covid-19 pandemic could provoke economic and social devastation comparable to that of history’s most severe epidemics. Among the many important questions to reflect upon is the heightened vulnerability of complex societies as their healthcare systems are increasingly destabilised.

A RICH SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

The Festival della Scienza Medica is preparing a completely new edition, with a programme centring on the ongoing healthcare emergency that will feature internationally renowned experts in medicine as well as political and economic aspects.

A GROWING SUCCESS

The Festival’s fifth edition was marked by great public success: in 2019, more than 55,000 participants took part in over 80 events, with more than 130 speakers. Attendees crowded the event’s 19 sites, including the majestic Salone del Podestà in Re Enzo Palace.
