    Vi et mente is more than the motto on the corporate medallion of Minerva Medica: it is the life-spring of an intense activity that involves our entire publishing team. Everything we achieve is the product of a stupendous collaborative effort by individuals each one of whom in his or her own field, and depending on the specific task assigned, works with total commitment to our shared mission, which is the publication of journals and books of ever higher quality.
