MOLTO TARDI MA TROPPO PRESTO… IL PROF. ANGELO CHIAVARO E LA LAUREA IN ODONTOIATRIA ITALIANA
The birth of the Degree in Dentistry in Italy has been very troubled, and only in 1980 saw its effective implementation. Very “instructive” in this regard is the history on the establishment in 1924 (the period of the seizure of power by Fascism) of a “National School of Dentistry” at the University of Rome, which was withdrawn after only ten months. The biggest supporter and proponent of the School, Prof. Angelo Chiavaro, after a few years, was “punished” with the transfer from the University of Rome to that of Genoa. We present some brief notes on the biography of this courageous pioneer and the matter of which he was the protagonist.
