Our nation can boast, since ancient times, an efficient and rapid development of navigation.
This snapshot growth has made possible not only the exercise of the trade, and with it the birth of the first forms of economy, but also Italy's ability to emerge victorious from numerous naval engagements concerning, in particular, the two World Wars.
The existence of such a significant history explains the presence of a tradition and an equally large and important cultural heritage.
A culture that the Navy is concerned promptly to preserve through continuous upgrading of its historical path and the small and large acts of heroism by its sailors, allowing even the sailors today to write the continuing of this long history.
