In 1983, the Italian Society of Sports Cardiology (SIC Sport) was founded by Antonio Venerando in Rome and I was among the 12 founding Members. Since 1983 I actively participated as a honorary Fellow to the scientific life of the SIC Sport, either as lecturer in the National Meetings, or faculty member in the educational courses that the society organizes periodically in Italy.
Indeed, I have been involved as scientific advisor in the organization of most educational and scientific events that the SIC Sport shares with other scientific societies in Italy.
In 2013 I was elected as Deputy-President of the Italian Society of Sport Cardiology.
