A workshop endorsed by the Italian Association of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation - Emilia Romagna Section - held in Piacenza in May 2011, gave the opportunity to discuss the emerging role of Preventive Cardiology in the modern era. From the new documents recently published by the European and Italian Scientific Associations, the barriers in their implementation, and the contribution of the health care providers, physicians, nurses, both in primary and secondary prevention were discussed. The local initiatives of cardiac prevention in different areas were presented and compared. A new project of secondary prevention in the follow-up and management of patients with dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure promoted by the Emilia Romagna Region Health Authority was presented.
