EURAPS 2022 – LETTER OF LOCAL HOST

It is a honour to chair the ERC 2022 meeting in Naples, hopefully back in person, that will be held on 25th-26th May 2022, just before the 2022 EURAPS meeting.

This event will be a unique opportunity for you to meet up with researchers and young specialists in different areas of Plastic Surgery and to improve your knowledge in new surgical techniques and innovative procedures that will be used in the future.

The Congress will take place at the Stazione Marittima Congress Centre of Naples, which is located in the city centre, in front of Palazzo San Giacomo, on the other side of the wide Piazza Municipio. The Congress Centre, same site of the EURAPS meeting, holds large meeting rooms, multiple exhibition areas, and a beautiful direct view on Maschio Angioino Castle and Sant’Elmo Castle, that we are sure you will enjoy during the meeting.

Naples represents the ideal context for a congress thanks to its privileged position in the Mediterranean shore, in the center of a bay of undisputed charm, gateway and home of several ancient cultures. Its historic center, the result of history, art and urban planning over a span of about three thousand years, has been recognized by UNESCO as a world heritage site for its large number of monuments, which testify the succession of cultures of the Mediterranean and Europe.

The gulf of Naples offers landscape jewels such as Capri, the Pearl of the Mediterranean, Ischia, known for its mineral-rich thermal waters, and Procida, the 2022 Italian capital of culture; worthy of special mention are the gems of the Amalfi coast such as Positano, Ravello and Amalfi itself.
All this wonderful landscapes offer the possibility to be visited with a day trip.

Looking forward to welcoming you to Naples for the 10th ERC annual meeting!
