The 10th Italian Meeting on Mitochondrial Diseases, held virtually on 9 and 10 October, has been particularly rich. The event involved the international scientific community, with more than 20 speakers and more than 350 registered people, among  whom experts, patients and family members, from over 30 countries. This shows how international the mito community is!

The meeting focused on progress in the field of mitochondrial medicine, the latest news on gene therapy and the acceleration of the involvement of "high tech" in daily practice. A very important part was dedicated to the research of therapies, with a specific focus on an update on ongoing clinical trials.
