The objectives of the premises, summarized in the claim that animated the week “The Naval Art Back to Home”, were achieved with full satisfaction. The Salone Nautico di Venezia enters in full title in the group of the manifestations dedicated to the nautical one from diporto to visit. And it does so with a new approach, demonstrating a strong cultural vocation, as the place that welcomes it deserves. During the Salone, in the various venues dedicated to conferences, 43 meetings were held in which it was possible to discuss all aspects of navigation: from the environment to sustainability, yacht design, accompanied by 8 exhibitions on the themes of boating, sea and transport.
As Luigi Brugnaro, Mayor of Venice, has declared: “Venice has returned as queen of the seas in the most open cultural sense possible. We have shown our skills in the design and architecture of the building, also recovering traditional activities. In these days Venice has remarried the sea. As a municipal administration we have already financed the Salone for two more years. We do not want this edition to be an impromptu event, indeed the goal we have set is that it becomes a fixed appointment so much that we have already started to collect registrations for the next edition”.

A response to the needs of the shipyards that have their production units in the Adriatic, to those who sail along the tourist corridor that leads from Venice to Istanbul via Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Greece. A Salon that will serve to the future of the nautical one from diporto, developing also the topic of the hybrid and electric propulsions.
