Francesco Maresca talks about the Genoa Boat Show
“Genoa whole city. Geranium. Powder magazine. Genoa of iron and air, my slate, sandstone. Genoa clean city. Breeze and light uphill. " With these verses by the poet and literary critic Giorgio Caproni, we open our conversation with theCouncilor for Heritage, Port, Sea and Fishing Francesco Maresca which states “We are at the 62nd edition of the Genoa Boat Show. Last year a record was recorded and this year we plan to surpass it; in fact, we are facing the years in which the nautical sector is growing more and more. Many people have a better chance of buying even smaller boats".
“Il Boat Show presents boats of higher quality from a structural point of view - in terms of materials used for environmental sustainability. On the other hand, there is a greater spending opportunity for potential buyers. Genoa is becoming the capital of Italian boating not only thanks to the Boat Show, but also thanks to the measures adopted by local administrations in favor of boating. We are growing above all because it is a sector that in Italy and Europe is showing the highest levels to the whole world ”- continues Maresca.
A global platform for institutional, technical and market comparison throughout the year
"The goal of the Municipality is to create in synergy with other bodies digital platforms that allow the users of boats and boating to go to a city and, digitally, by registering on these free platforms, to understand their better needs ”- he says Maresca. "For example, the owner of a boat that arrives in Genoa enters this platform which can be a ' Whatsapp and can know the location of the places for his needs through the help of the platform itself. So let's talk about boating combined with city services, a fundamental synergy for the growth of tourism and the increase in user services ".
Councilor Maresca, what can you ultimately tell us?
"The Boat Show will be a show that will remain in part permanently throughout the city and will represent the nerve center of Italian boating in the Capital of the Mediterranean which is precisely, GenoVa".
