The neurorehabilitation in Sapienza
Neurorehabilitation in Rome has a glorious tradition that began in 1883 with Prof. Sciamanna, continued in 1905 with Prof. Mingazzini at the Policlinico Umberto I, a hospital inaugurated in 1904. In 1924, Neurorehabilitation moved to the present neoclassical building at 30 Viale dell'Università where shortly before, in 1921, the Institute of Clinical Nervous and Mental Diseases had been established. Prof. Mingazzini is the Institute's first director. From 1930 to 1950 were succeeded by directors Prof. Sante De Sanctis, Prof. Vittorio Challiol and Prof. Mario Gozzano. In 1970, the Institute of Clinical Nervous and Mental Diseases consists of the I Neurological Clinic with the Neurorehabilitation service directed by Prof. Cornelio Fazio and the II Neurological Clinic with the Neurorehabilitation service directed by Prof. Vincenzo Floris.
Since 1980, the teaching of Neurology has been carried out by their students: Prof. Cesare Fieschi and Prof. Cristoforo Morocutti up to the present day with Prof. Francesco Pierelli, Prof. Carlo Casali and Prof. Mariano Serrao who carry on the neurorehabilitation tradition of the II Neurological Clinic currently located at the Pontine Pole of Sapienza University in the Department of Medical and Surgical Sciences and Biotechnology.
