The world of epidemiology came together to celebrate the ninetieth birthday of Professor Benedetto Terracini, one of the founders of Italian epidemiology and its greatest advocate, as well as the first co-ordinator of the Referral Centre for Epidemiology and Cancer Prevention in Piedmont - CPO Piemonte.

In his own speech, Professor Terracini retraced his professional and personal story, his academic and social commitments, and the struggles in the defence of the health and rights of workers and the most vulnerable in society.

A video of the speech is available on the CPO Piemonte channel on YouTube.

A video containing all the speeches from Benedetto's party will be made available in the coming weeks, again via the CPO Piemonte channel on YouTube.
