Abstract

The chair of Veterinary Pharmacology was inaugurated in Milan in 1966. Remo Faustini, who had for years sought to elevate veterinary pharmacology to the dignity of a chair, was appointed as first chair-holder. Veterinary medicine was first taught in Milan from 1791 in the Scuola Veterinaria Minore, located in Milan’s old plague hospital, the Lazzaretto. The first teachers were Volpi and Lucchini. In 1808 the School transferred to the church of S. Francesca Romana, where it became the Scuola Veterinaria Completa Teorico-Pratica and whose teaching included pharmacy and pharmaco-therapy. After the restoration of Austrian hegemony (1815) the school became the Imperiale Regio Istituto Veterinario:pharmacy and pharmacotherapy assumed important roles on the curriculum. Following the unification of Italy (1861) the school became the Regia Scuola Superiore di Medicina Veterinaria. As the century closed the anatomist Varaldi was appointed head; to be succeeded in turn by the clinicians Bernardini and Moretti, the physiologist Pugliese and the immuno-pathologist Ascoli. In 1927, with Ascoli still at its head,the school transferred to its present site in the Città Studi of Milan, and in 1933 became Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. Veterinary pharmacology was first taught as a specialist subject by the physicians Valenti (1933-1944) and Adami (1944-1957). In 1957 Remo Faustini, graduate in veterinary medicine, succeeded Adami, but continued working in the nascent veterinary pharmaceutics industry. From 1966 he held the chair of Veterinary Pharmacology until 1980 when he transferred to the newly constituted chair of Veterinary Toxicology. From 1980 Carlo Beretta has been appointed as chair-holder of Veterinary Pharmacology.
