Kongress Milano 2022
ACCADEMIA ITALIANA DI STORIA DELLA FARMACIA, the AISF is working to organize the International Congress of History of Pharmacy in Milan in early September 2022 by the old and prestigious hospital Ca’ Granda (now University of Milan), founded in 1456 by the Duke of Milan Francesco Sforza and designed by the architect Filarete.
The main theme of the international congress will be Health and Well-being. The most important target of WHO is reaching of the highest level of health, defined as a state of total physical, mental and social well-being, and not simply the lack of sickness and infirmity.
For this reason, the topic of the congress takes his starting point in the Prospectus Pharmaceuticus sub quo Antidotarium Mediolanense of 1668, almost certainly the first official pharmacopeia in the world that have a specific chapter dedicated to the manufacture of beauty products, so to make them similar to the medicaments. The AISF, through its President, will communicate the final title of the congress.
