Dear Colleagues,

As Chairmen of the “ADI-ADMG Dermatology International Congress” and on behalf of the ADI (Ionic Dermatological Association) and of the ADMG (Association of Dermatologists of Magna Greece), we are very pleased to invite you to the city of Taormina, Italy, the city that will host this meeting from 9 to 11 november, 2023.

The Symposium programme will be characterised by a selection of relevant topics proposed by high-level Italian and foreign speakers. Dedicated tracks will focus on clinicopathological correlation, contact allergy and occupational dermatology, skin diseases and systemic inflammation, dermato-oncology, as well as dermatosurgery.

The event will be spread over 3 days (Thursday to Saturday) with many tracks of Review and Updates stimulating Plenary Lectures for all to attend, Free Communications sessions highlighting the latest research and findings. In addition, there will be plenty of space dedicated to new technologies and innovative cosmetics.

Housed in a state-of-the-art structure, the Diodoro Conference Center is in the heart of the city, near the Ancient Theatre, and offers panoramic views of the surrounding area. It is a spacious, elegant, technological, comfortable conference center that will provide an unforgettable experience for everyone. Taormina is a small town on the east coast of Sicily known for its beaches and also known to be a place of cultural richness. There are only 11,000 people living in Taormina, but that does not stop it from being a cultural center and home to interesting events. With its mild climate, there are performances almost year round, with opera, pop and classical concerts by some of the best Italian and foreign artists. There is also the Taormina Film Fest, a very popular and reputed festival, celebrating Italy’s finest actors and actresses.

Taormina is a shocking beauty. Within the city, modernity and ancient ruins are mixed together. If you have never seen it, do not miss this opportunity. If you know it, you’ll be happy to return. You will also be rewarded with excellent cuisine.

We look forward to seeing in Taormina.

About Taormina

As soon as you arrive in Taormina, you will feel the magical, mythical atmosphere spread all around which has enchanted visitors from all over the world for years and years. Settled on a hill of the Monte Tauro, Taormina dominates two grand, sweeping bays below and on the southern side, the top of Mount Etna, the European highest active volcano, often capped with snow, offering to the visitors a breathtaking, dramatic and memorable view over almost one hundred miles of Mediterranean sea.
Taormina really seems to be born as a tourist resort since past times, when ancient people like the Sicels, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Saracens, Arabs, Normans and Spaniards chose it as their residential site thank to its favourable position, mild climate and magic atmosphere. Nowadays visitors can still find fine examples of Taormina’s golden times: the splendid Greek Theatre, the Roman “Naumachiae”, the 10th century Palazzo Corvaja, the 13th century Cathedral of Saint Nicolò, the 16th century Palace of the Dukes of Saint Stefano, the public gardens, the “Badia Vecchia” (Ancient Abbey) and many others.

The resort was first published by a trio of German artists. In 1787 J.W. Goethe discovered the beauties of Sicily and, in particular, of Taormina. He wrote the world known novel “Italian Journey”, in which he describes the beauties of this land and its people and pronounced Taormina a “patch of paradise”. The German painter Otto Geleng rose interest in Parisian art galleries exhibiting his paintings about this magical landscapes. His contemporary, the young prussian photographer Wilhelm von Gloeden settled down in 1880 and made Taormina famous to all conservative European cultural clubs with his artistic portraits of nude shepherd boys with the volcano Etna on the backstage.

Since then many important celebrities visited Taormina, electing it as their “escapade place” from chaotic city life. Patrick Brydone D.H. Lawrence, Truman Capote, Alexander Dumas, Anatole France, Andrè Gide, Paul Klee, Guy de Maupassant, Luigi Pirandello, John Steinbeck, Gustav Klimt, Elio Vittorini, Oscar Wilde, Richard Wagner, Johannes Brahms spent happy moments here. In more recent times movie, theatre and music celebrities such as Ingmar Bergmann, Francis Ford Coppola, Leonard Bergman, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Federico Fellini, Cary Grant, Tyrone Power, Gregory Peck, Marcello Mastroianni, Elisabeth Taylor, Woody Allen have spent pleasant and memorable holidays in the Mediterranean pearl.

Since the opening of the first hotel in 1874, Taormina has become one of the world top tourist destinations where visitors can experience a perfect combination of old times charming atmosphere, preservation of history and culture, an elegant and lively way of life to be enjoyed in relaxing walks through the old town pedestrian areas. The tourist has a lot to do and see: top level art performances at the Greek theatre, several painting exhibitions held in local palazzi and churces, fine elegant shopping along the famous “Corso Umberto” with its classical music cafès and pastry shops. Or visiting local art museums, taking naturalistic walks in the surrounding countryside, golfing at the nearby 18-holes green, enjoying the fantastic beaches at easy reach, where the mild Mediterranean climate allows to practise all water sports as swimming, scuba diving, sailing, windsurfing, or just sunbathing for nearly eight months a year and even more.

For those looking for the world known Sicilian cuisine, the town offers a wide choice of restaurants, trattorias and pizzerias, pastry-shops, bars, cafes, pubs and for any taste and budget. You won’t find many fast food: Sicilians aren’t really crazy about them! Come and see why…

Come to Taormina, the ultimate paradise!
