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

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

Nobel laureates, scientists, doctors and researchers from all over the world have given rise to a structured debate on the health emergency, analyzed from a medical, scientific, economic, social and political point of view.

A GROWING SUCCESS

The 2020 edition – broadcast in full online and dedicated to the theme “Lessons from Medicine. Covid-19” – has registered a huge public success: there have been over 223,000 online presences in eight days.
