The Scuola Grande di San Rocco is located in the heart of Venice between the Academia and the Railway Station, 8 minutes from the St Lucia Railway Station, 3 minutes from the San Toma stop on the vaporetto lines. The Scuola Grande Di San Rocco (see historical background) was a Venitian School (see history), founded in 1478. This is an exceptional opportunity for us to be able to use the Scuola Grande as a meeting place. This has been accepted and is possible only because EVRS is a teaching society where knowledge is shared and generosity is a main concern as it was the case for the Venitian Schools.
The building of the Scuola Grande, where the major part of the congress will take place (see picture), was built at the beginning of the 16th Century (see history). It contains 2 major rooms, one on the ground floor where the exhibition area will be located (see picture) and one on the superior level where the sessions will be held (see picture). For a virtual tour of the superior level click here. The walls of these two rooms and the ceiling of the upper level room are enterily recovered with the famous Tintoretto’s (1518-1594) paintings (see gallery).

Perseverare Diabolicum” is the second part of the latin statement “Errare Humanum Est Sed Perseverare Diabolicum” that could also be translated into “Oops, Gasp, Damn, Hmm, Oh No …”. This means that the sessions will be dedicated to our errors, mistakes, complications, incidents, diagnostic problems, strategic difficulties etc. and their solutions in the fields of surgical & medical retina. The presentations will be restricted to clinical case reports using images (angiographies, OCTs, fundus pictures, video tapes etc.). Cases of similar topics will be grouped together in the sessions. During the sessions, the cases will be presented and then discussed during round tables. The goal is to have a lively debate on the tricks and techniques that allow the ophthalmologist prevention and/or treatment of these problems. (Please note that “standard” type of presentations or materials not related to problems or to how to treat them will not be accepted.)

The exhibit hall is surrounded by Tintoretto’s paintings. These paintings are full of emotional & irreplaceable values, this giving a secret atmosphere to the hall.
