Marittima Bonistalli), Andrea Monti (Sogese Srl), Giampaolo Scalabrella (Studio Commerciale Scalabrella), Lino Capozzi (Gruppo Ormeggiatori Livorno) and Piero Pampana (Eurotrans Srl). During the evening, a lottery was also organized with prizes kindly donated by many local well known companies while the proceeds from the ticket sales were completely donated to the non profit organization “Associazione Porto Dei Piccoli”.
The Propeller Clubs were born from the initiative of a group of businessmen in New York who frequently meet to discuss and solve problems relating to shipping. On January 23, 1923 was born the first Propeller Club in New York. The name was chosen to symbolize the driving force of the association characterizing the strong maritime inclination. The Propeller Club Port of Leghorn was the fifth to be founded in Italy, after Genoa, Milan, Naples and Venice and today is one of the most representative and active club in Italy.
