The first day of the UCINA Satec Convention 2017 ended with the gala dinner, which, like every year, featured the awarding of the “Boating Pioneers” prize for mangers, journalists, project managers/designers and specialized workers who have significantly contributed to the history of the nautical industry in Italy.


Those who received the prize during this 2017 edition were Fulvio Codecasa, for the Manager category; Francesco Banfo for the Specialized Workers category; Aldo Cichero for the Nautical Project Managers and Designers category; Francesca Lodigiani for the Italian Journalists category; and Michael Verdon for the Foreign Journalists category.


The “Special Prize 2017” was instead awarded to Sergio Selva, owner of one of the most historical Italian shipyard, who passed away last March.
