Winter school


 Winter School:

5-9 FEBRUARY 2024

The University of Padua and its research team is pleased to present the new edition of the Winter School of Fascial Anatomy, scheduled from 5 to 9 February 2024.

The Winter School is the first congress on Fascial Anatomy that includes sessions dedicated to fascial dissection and many workshops.

A fantastic program has been prepared for you! Together we will provide you with a global view of the fasciae and a deep understanding of all the anatomical aspects related to them.

All the team of Padova will present the most recent research they are doing on fascial anatomy, dissections of the most important fasciae will be carried out (by Prof. Carla Stecco). Furthermore, we will have the contribution of many great researchers from other universities: Robert Schleip, Rebecca Pratt, Chenglei Fan, Wilbour Kelsick, Miguel-Pérez Maribel. 

See our program!

The world of fascia is a fascinating world and the more it is studied, the more extraordinary its properties appear both in terms of structural, biomechanical, communicative, and immune functions. The fascia forms a three dimensional intracellular matrix of support, continuity and communication for the whole body.

The event focuses on fascial anatomy with a global vision and interdisciplinary approach with lectures and fascia dissection sessions.




The online Winter School is open to all Physiotherapists, Medical Doctors and Osteopaths, Yoga and Pilates Instructors, Personal Trainers and all experts in activities related to movement and research who want to deepen fascial anatomy to understand all its properties with the latest studies and through specific dissection sessions.



All the speakers and researchers involved in the online Winter School make their time and knowledge available free of charge to support research on the fascia of the University of Padua.

All the registration fees will be donated directly to the University of Padua to be used for future research on fascial anatomy. So, we hope this event achieves a twofold goal: to give you the latest knowledge on fascial anatomy and to raise enough funds to support all new research planned for 2024!
