is a non profit organization established in Bologna in 2001 after a successful
workshop on the old people living conditions within the modern society
held two years before. Luigi Pagnoni and Lucio Pardo, actually BSC secretary
and vice-president respectively, had the idea to collect all the scientific
contributions presented during that workshop into a book titled "Old
young people or young old men?". Over 90 researchers, scientists
and health professionals, Italian and foreigners, contributed to this
book according own different points of view given by their own professional
and personal background.
preface of the book was written by Prof. Elie Wiesel, Boston University
(USA), Nobel Prize winner for peace. The book is presented by the Chancellor
of the university of Bologna, Prof. Calzolari,
by the President of the Emilia- Romagna region, the president f the province
of Bologna and by the mayor of the commune of Bologna. All the Committee's
members think that the book could be useful not only for patients but
also for all the Italian National Health Service professionals.
It is expected that
other workshops focused on other important social and health issues will
follow the first one.
BSC has launched its
journal "Cauterium" committed to care about next monographic
studies and a newsletter "Bollettino BSC" (BSC Bulletin), responsible
for the dissemination of the BSC initiatives.
