Italian nautical manufacturers representing 25 brands have created Nautica Italiana, which aims to create a strategy for developing the nautical industry in Italy and internationally.
Top priorities of the Milan-based association include supporting exports by reaffirming the industry’s credibility and reliability through the adoption and promotion of the Charter of Values as an integral part of the Articles
of Association; having a presence at the most important international events; and developing a system to monitor the industry’s performance.
Founding members created a seven-member board: Chairman Lamberto Tacoli; vice chairpersons Luigi Alberto Amico, Cataldo Aprea, Fabio Boschi and Giovanna Vitelli; Director Corrado Salvemini; and General Secretary Lorenzo Pollicardo.
Though independent, the association is affiliated with Fondazione Altagamma, which is made up of luxury industries such as fashion, jewelry and automotive.
