WSRM 2019
10th Congress of World Society for
Reconstructive Microsurgery

12th - 15th June 2019

Palazzo della Cultura e dei Congressi
Bologna, Italy

Dear WSRM Members,

I am happy and honored to invite you to Bologna for the 10th WSRM which will be held from 12 to 15 June 2019, and will have a rich programme of news, conferences, workshops and debates.

Bologna, located in the region of Emilia-Romagna is seat to the oldest university in the Western world. It is a city with an intense cultural life and a very interesting historical heritage. In 2000 it was selected as the European Capital of Culture and in 2006 UNESCO named it “the creative city of music". The most renowned symbols of Bologna are its characteristic arcades, extending along 38 kilometers in the old city only, and its towers offering visitors the opportunity to admire Bologna and its lovely surroundings. The most important of them are Torre Garisenda and Torre degli Asinelli rising where the old Via Emilia entered the city.  The number of historic buildings is almost endless, and three of them -  Palazzo del Podestà, built around 1200, Palazzo Re Enzo and Palazzo Comunale or Accursio, now home to the Town Hall - are all facing the main square (Piazza Maggiore). However, Bologna is first and foremost a university city, where young people and a vibrant cultural life can be seen at each step. In every street, narrow alley and porticoed walkway one can experience the spirit of cordiality and hospitality of Bologna and discover its great cuisine tradition. Bologna is all this and much more. If you join the 10th WSRM in 2019 we will do our best to make you enjoy our country.
