AIDAA effort
against COVID-19

The XXVI Congress is organized by the Tuscany Section of AIDAA in Pisa. The coronavirus outbreak that started in 2020 is still a worldwide emergency, and each of us is asked to contribute to defeating COVID-19. Although the organizers look forward to getting in touch with AIDAA members and friends, the Congress will be entirely online.

Thanks for understanding
