World Kidney Day (WKD) started in 2006 by a memorandum of understanding between the International Federation of Kidney Foundations (IFKF) and the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) based on a proposal to increase awareness, detection, prevention, and treatment of kidney diseases (1). In recent years WKD has grown dramatically and it is now the most celebrated event associated with kidney disease in the world (2). In Italy the WKD was planned and conducted by the Fondazione Italiana del Rene (FIR; National Kidney Foundation of Italy), in collaboration with the Italian Society of Nephrology (SIN) and the Red Cross of Italy. Italian WKD focused on two projects called ”Square project” and “School project”. The “Square project” was intended for general population and the “School project” for students attending the fifth year of Italian high school. Previous data have been separately reported (3-5). In this article the data of both projects, collected in the edition of years 2010 and 2011, are reported.
