Caro Luciano,
I wanted once more to congratulate you for the perfect organization of the Milano ICI conference. Rarely have I seen such an excellent program at large meeting of this size. The scientific match, the choice of the speakers and the complementarity of the topics were outstanding. The venue and the logistics were remarkably efficient and your continuous presence was reassuring.
And thank you for having me participate in the Saturday evening dinner.
I hope that our paths will cross again one day,
Warm personal regards, Giulio

Dear Marco and Luciano,
I want to thank you both for extending such generous hospitality to my staff – Kaylene Kenyon, Mary Litzinger and Jenny Woods- during the ICI. They had a wonderful time and expressed over and over how wonderful you were to them. It was a great experience and, of course, they adored “all things Italian”.
It sounds as if the ICI was very successful both scientifically and socially. You put great effort and thought into this meeting. My heartfelt congratulations and best regards.
Sincerely, M. Michele Hogan, Ph.D.

Dear Luciano,
Thank you very much for your feedback about my participation to ICI preparation. I am pleased that the new IUIS motto is positively perceived and brought a positive image to ICI Milan. 
On my side, I enjoyed a lot working with you even if some of my efforts didn't bring to ICI what we wanted like raising money with Dana or trying to create video content and slide shows struggling with MiCo. Our joint effort has been more successful to get the $54K Gates Foundation's grant to award 30 young immunologists to attend the congress and finally we promoted efficiently the ICI Milan using IUIS social media tools and the webinar idea reaching more than 25,000 people. 
I have been really impressed by your calm and constant availability all along the congress preparation. Thanks to you, the congress has been incredibly successful form the memorable opening session to the closing remarks. I want to keep working with you and I am confident that we will find new challenges in immunology to form a team again.
Warm regards, Jean-Loup

It was nice to see you in Milano. Many congratulations for the success of the International Congress you organized. I was so impressed by many audience in the conference rooms all the time. Once again I really enjoyed our trip in Italy with my families to see paintings from Assisi, Siena, Firenze, Padova, and Venezia to Milano. This is our unforgettable trip to Europe.

Querido Luciano, I apologize for getting back so late to you. I had some difficulties in finding your email address. And this is to say how much Marianne and I appreciated your support of her after the silly and unpleasant incidence. All of you went out of your way to make sure that it was resolved , as it did. The meeting was a success by all criteria and I much enjoyed it. After the meeting we spent three great days in Rome under our # 1 italian faculty: Marco Colonna. Our memories of this trip to Italy are very good, an unpleasant eve did not ruin the whole trip.
Again, saludos, gracias and best regards, Emil

Dal canto mio è la prima volta che ho gioito per questo tipo di meeting che ho sempre considerato troppo grande e dispersivo.

Subject: Congratulations to Luciano
I’m attending the 15th International Congress of Immunology in Milan of which Luciano is the President. I’d like to congratulate him on both the excellent job at the world’s largest Immunology conference (~5,500 attendees) and for the visibility he is giving Intercept.
Seeing him on his home turf, both physically and more importantly professionally, it is clear he is highly esteemed by this community and his peers.
When I arrived I was chatting to him, when approached by a slightly anxious individual asking if his talk met Luciano’s goals and if Luciano thought it went well. This was Jules Hoffman, one of 3 Nobel Laureates at the meeting!
Congratulations, Luciano – you put Intercept and yourself in a very good light.
With best wishes, David

Dear colleagues,
Before it all fades and we are back to the forgetful intensity of normal life, I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed this meeting; Thanks for your untiring support and creative solutions.
I loved the opening ceremony - all the music - the violinist was on fire - you have to be extraordinarily good to carry off Paganini credibly - not surprising that people thought he was in league with the Devil.
In particular, and personally, I just loved the evening of the quartet in the chapel and courtyard. I was blown away by the prelude to the 1st unaccompanied cello suite by Bach, up close and personal by the young lady cellist.
I loved the choice of wine - I hope we can meet this challenge when you come to Australia - and the voice of food provider, in the spirit of IUIS aspiration - but I feel it will be a while before I go to a meeting where this was all so perfect in all the elements.
And then it was past midnight, and time to go home, still wanting more.
How could it have been better?
And then on the last day, even my 3 h session (which I can now admit I was dreading) was fascinating; it sparkled with great science and discussion by a strong attendance and was over before I knew it!!
Although I write only to you, please convey my congratulations to all the contributors.
Best wishes, Nick

Dear Maria and Luciano
Thanks a lot to you and your team for organising such a magnificent meeting.
Being hosted by you for one week made us to start feeling at home. Thanks for your hospitality and special care, which I appreciate a lot. You have wonderful people working for you. They were all very kind and helpful.
The only thing that did not succeed that well was the Fiera catering – and I know it is not up to you. It was not really up to its price and there were not enough booths for service. And paying separately at another desk is somehow strange and slowed down the service (although this seems to be a general system). In fact, coffee should have been freely available. But for the most part it also worked. Overall, there was enough space, and opportunities to meet while walking back and forth. The poster area was a bit too tight, though.
But, all in all, it was a successful congress, for which I want to congratulate you and wish you all the best. Hope to see you again.
This on behalf of myself and the whole Executive Committee of IUIS.
Warm regards, Seppo

Dear Luciano,
I just wanted to thank you again for inviting me to chair a session and give a talk in this great meeting. Urszula Krzych and I fully enjoyed the opening ceremony that I was sure was all designed by you. As I remember from those old days in Eli's lab you always listened to classical music and opera while doing science. To plan the opening ceremony as a mixture of the music and science was so much appreciated by so many of us sitting among the audience that we wished to be followed by others in charge of other scientific meetings.
I look forward to talking to you soon, Scheherazade

Caro Alberto,
un grazie per il Congresso. Mi hai detto: "questo è il nostro mondo", con orgoglio, emozione e speranza. Ha emozionato anche me vedere le sale sempre piene di tanti giovani. Molto intensa la cerimonia inaugurale e programma tosto! Io ho solo potuto "spizzicare" (troppa scienza per un'umile clinica di provincia!!), ma quanto ho scelto di ascoltare è stato molto stimolante, anche per il mio quotidiano.
Torno alla mia trincea (strutturale, organizzativa, complicata, ma comunque tanto amata), ricordandomi che se posso fare tutto quello che faccio è perchè dietro ci siete tutti voi. Sentendomi così un po' meno sola.

Hi Alberto,
I hope that this note finds you OK. I would like the opportunity to thank you for the wonderful congress that you have organized and thank you for inviting me. The congress was perfect in all aspect!!!!! The program was rich and interesting, the venue was great and easy to get around and the hospitality and social events were great as well. Also the weather was good. My hotel (Mini Hotel Portello) was great and most important 100m of the venue, which made life for me during the conference easy and convenient. I suppose that for you is was a hugh task to organize the congress and for this you also deserve many thanks. To me, this was the best ICI I have ever attended and this congress now put new standards for the organizers of the next congress. The company that organized the congress was also superb, this was manifested on their in situ function as well as my correspondence with them before the travel, always an immediate and instructive response. Last, but not least, your lecture was top interesting and excellent.
I wish you and your family Much Health, Happiness and Personal for the 5774 New Year.

Cari Luciano e Massimo,
desidero ringraziarvi per l’opportunità, non solo aziendale, ma soprattutto personale, di partecipare all’ICI 2013. Ho avuto modo di apprezzare alcune delle main lecture e nonostante sia ormai ”fuori” dall’ambiente scientifico e di entusiasmarmi durante alcune presentazioni. E’ stata inoltre una possibilità di incontro personale con tutti i colleghi immunologi, con cui ho percorso un tratto di strada quando ancora in laboratorio (momento penso irripetibile visto che molti lavorano all’estero: Singapore, Francia, Canada); e di incontro con un modo scientifico emergente: paesi dell’est, Medio oriente, Asia, Africa. La cultura del bello (musica e ambienti scelti per gli eventi) associata alla scienza ne ha esaltato le caratteristiche di creatività, armonia e operosità. 
Spero che entrambi stiate godendo di un periodo di riposo; immagino che l’organizzazione e la cura dei dettagli negli ultimi mesi abbia assorbito tutte le vostre energie.
A presto e grazie, Francesca
