Historic Florence was the location for this year's ITI Congress Italy, which attracted close to 900 implant dentistry professionals. Top national speakers came to lecture in this beautiful city and contributed to a unique scientific program. An industry exhibition as well as a research and clinical case competition completed the range of activities. Marco Aglietta and Ferruccio Torsello won the research competition and Stefan Storelli was awarded first place of the clinical case competition.
A pre-congress course offered in English with simultaneous translation into Italian was an excellent opportunity for non-Italian speakers to participate. It was held by Hans-Peter Weber, Tufts University Boston, and German O. Gallucci, Harvard University Boston.
