Albinit anual meeting September 2018

At the end of September the Italian Association Albinit held our annual meeting in the beautiful surrounding of Montelupo Fiorentino, This year was a very special occasion as we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the Association. 

The 2 intensive days were full of important updates on scientific research and on the association activities, but also lots of entertainment. It is a wonderful feeling being together with all the members of our big family!

Albinit anual meeting September 2018On the first day we had the pleasure of hosting the representatives of the Niguarda Hospital. During their speech they illustrated the most recent updates on Albinism and the conclusions reached by the European Scientific Committee during the EDA Meeting that took place in Norway in March. An important development is their intention to continue and improve their role as a National point of reference for Albinism at a multidisciplinary level.

We also had a workshop involving all attending participants to define the most interesting area of action and provide guidelines on the future activities of the Association.

Albinit anual meeting September 2018During the event, the children and young people had a parallel program coordinated by Artè Association and had the opportunity to experiment with several activities tailored to the different ages, to explore the history of the white wolf through multiple activities such as writing, drawings and painting ceramics.

Albinit anual meeting September 2018In the evening the Theatre group “Improvvisti” performed an improvised theatre show , the show was introduced by a video filmed in the city, where they asked people to experience the challenges of everyday life in the shoes of people with visual impairments, by wearing special glasses covered with transparent film and trying to do common actions such as choose ice cream flavours in a shop or read bus timetables.


The evening also included the unveiling of our 2019 Calendar. This is a totally new project by Denise Prandini “Guarda più Forte” (Watch Louder) and features the young members of our Association. The artwork is as full of colour as they are full of positive energy.
