On 13th February 2018, along with the Decree for the new Nautical Code, National Sea Day also comes into effect (D. Lgs. 3rd November 2017, n. 229 – Art. 52).

The Italian Republic acknowledges that each year the date 11th April will be “National Sea Day” for schools of every kind and level, in order to promote knowledge of the sea as a key cultural, scientific, recreational and economic resource.

In honour of Italy’s first “National Sea Day”, Italian Marine Industry Association, Assilea (the Italian leasing association), Confarca (the association for boating schools) and the Italian Sailing Federation have produced a video which has been sent to all secondary schools of first and second level.
