XXIX SILAE Congress – Invitation

October 4-8th 2019 – Sorrento and Napoli, Italy

The Sorrentine Peninsula

Sorrento peninsula has a landscape unique in the world, where low and high hills, deep valleys and majestic mountains alternate, where the man’s work – who levelled even the most impervious areas, transforming them in the famous terraces degrading towards the sea, on which he cultivated orange and lemon trees, olive groves and vineyards – has been grandiose. These are the delightful gardens that in spring time exhale a stirring scent of orange – blossom. The mild and dry climate for most part of the year makes Sorrento peninsula the ideal destination in every season.

Reaching it by land, the first town you will find on your way is Meta, whose ancient farmhouses and sunny beaches are a treasure to disclose.
Piano di Sorrento is a lively town that masterly combines its maritime and rural identity to the role of active trade centre of the Peninsula. High walls that once enclosed old citrus groves run along narrow lanes that cross its low hill.
And Sant’Agnello, on the tuff ridge right on the sea, enchanted the royal family of the Bourbons and the princes of all Europe, who built there fabulous villas. And, just on the sea, surrounded by hills, appears Sorrento, international town, with its old city centre, its sea-shore, its citrus groves. Finally the pleasant Massa Lubrense, extreme border of the Peninsula, just in front of Capri, a natural oasis with countless foot-paths among ancient farmhouses, archaeological areas, Mediterranean bush and indescribable landscapes, on enchanting sea and beaches.

The 29° SILAE annual congress, organized by the University of Salerno, will take place this year at the Grand Hotel Vesuvio (Hotel Venue), Sorrento. The conference represents an occasion for researchers to meet, learn, develop and share scientific information on the use of medicinal and food plants in different countries of the world.
