In 1964 J. Serrin proposed the following conjecture. Let u ε W loc1, 1 (ω) be a weak solution of the second order elliptic equation (1) below, in divergence form, with Holder continuous coefficients aij(x); then u is a "classical" solution. We announce a solution of this conjecture assuming onlyue BVloc(ω) and Dini continuous coefficients.
