The idea of launching another special issue of the Journal of limnology on Lake Orta was born in 2014, on the 25th anniversary of its liming intervention, during an International symposium on Lake Orta organized and hosted by the Pallanza Institute (http://www.ise.cnr.it/vb). The conference did not simply celebrate the past.
