Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We are glad to Welcome you all to the 30th edition of the Meeting of the European Renal Cell Study Group (ERCSG).
This year the Meeting will be in the gorgeous hills of Florence, in the splendid Medici Villa "La Ferdinanda", an UNESCO World Heritage site, known as the “Villa of the 100 chimneys". The Villa is a masterpiece of the Renaissance, standing on the top of the hill of Artimino, a middle age village distant only 30 minutes by car from the airport of Florence and famous for its grapes, giving excellent wines, and for the multitudes of olive trees. The area is also known as an archeological site and is enriched by beautiful romanic churches containing art masterpieces such as the “Visitazione” of Pontormo.

The scientific program will maintain the same format with keynote lectures by prestigious speakers and stimulating oral presentations from the participants.

In addition, this year we will organize “discussions around the fireplaces” on different topics, tasting a glass of wine and local typical food.

We hope to welcome all of you in this lovely corner of Tuscany to share your research work, engage in stimulating discussions and exchange ideas!
