On behalf of the World Association for the History of Veterinary Medicine (WAHVM), the Italian Association for the History of Veterinary Medicine and Farriery (A.I.S.Me.Ve.M.) is honoured to invite you to the 45th International Congress of the World Association for the History of Veterinary Medicine (WAHVM).
The 45th Congress of WAHVM will be hosted from 31st August – 3rd September 2022, in Brescia, one of the most important town in Northern Italy. Brescia is situated at the foot of the Alps, few kilometres from Garda lake. Founded over 3,200 years ago, Brescia (in antiquity Brixia) has been an important regional centre since pre-Roman times. Its old town contains the best-preserved Roman public buildings in Northern Italy and numerous monuments, among these the Medieval castle, the Old and New cathedral, the Renaissance Piazza della Loggia and the rationalist Piazza della Vittoria. Moreover, the monumental archaeological area of the Roman forum and the monastic complex of San Salvatore-Santa Giulia have become a UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of a group of seven inscribed as Longobards in Italy, Places of Power.
The province is known for being the production area of the Franciacorta sparkling wine, as well as the main source of Italian-produced caviar. Brescia with its territory was the “European Region of Gastronomy” in 2017.
The Congress will be held at the Zooprophylactic and Zootechnical Initiatives Foundation
