ESM 2013 in Florence

     A large number of attenders (almost 300) and the nice summer weather characterized the 34th Congress of European Society of Mycobacteriology hold in a country resort on one of the hills surrounding Florence. The scientific level was very high, with 20 outstanding invited speakers participating to different sections and symposia. Fifty one lectures were given in total and 108 posters, four of which were awarded, were presented. The honouree lecture from G. Riccardi and the presentation from the winner of the 3rd G. Meissner Award, I. Comas, were particularly appreciated.  The magic atmosphere of welcome cocktail at the castle of Vincigliata was the salient event of the social program which included also a visit to the historical centre of Florence.
