Elevating Italian Tourism: Renato Marconi, CEO of Marinedi, at the Forefront of Italy’s Maritime Industry Summit


Renato Marconi, CEO of Marinedi, attended the “Italian Tourism Port Authorities General Assembly” with Minister Nello Musumeci to discuss the strategic plan for Italian tourism port infrastructure for the period 2025-2027.

The event “General States of Italian Tourist Port Infrastructure” took place on February 20, 2024, in Rome, organized by ASSONAT-Confcommercio, together with Assonautica Italiana-Unioncamere.

Renato Marconi, CEO and founder of the Marinedi Group, responded to the invitation from the Minister for Civil Protection and Maritime Policy, Nello Musumeci, to assist the government in analyzing the major needs felt by those managing tourist ports, thus helping to define concrete objectives to work on.

“I would urge all of us to push for the implementation of the Maritime Plan, a guiding document full of interesting insights for our sector, especially from the perspective of bureaucratic simplification,” Marconi stated during his speech. “At this moment in Italy, we are witnessing extraordinary interest from foreign investors, who often take over from tired Italian entrepreneurs worn out by bureaucracy. The government should ensure that this no longer happens, making it clear how this sector brings Italy great visibility, strength, and economic spin-offs.”

During the proceedings, Assonat President Luciano Serra also intervened with a programmatic report focused on defining a Strategic Plan for Italian Tourist Port Infrastructure, a path initiated by the Association with the aim of contributing to the revitalization of one of the most relevant sectors of the Maritime Economy that brings together two of Italy’s main excellencies: Italian yachting industry and tourism.
