Our Mission

Assarmatori is the association for Italy’s Maritime cluster. Italy is a Country with an unrivalled shipping community and, historically, it is home to one of the largest European fleets. The largest European insular community lives in Italy, and all the maritime connections are operated by one of the largest ferry fleets in the world. Italy has the second largest industrial output in Europe which is directly connected to a network of more than 18 commercial ports spread throughout any corner of “Bel Paese”, which is Italy, our beautiful country.

Assarmatori is established as a new association for shipowners and operators operating within Italy. This gives for the first time a strong center for representation for the entire maritime industry, both at the national and international levels, which can also generate greater employment in Italy. As another first for Italy, the association members can include participation of international shipowning groups operating throughout Italy, which also play an important role in the Italian maritime employment market.

Assarmatori is the voice of the of the shipping industry in Italy. It works to foster a global playing field and to promote a competitive and open business environment for all shipping activities to enhance the Blue economy. Its mission is to represent all shipping enterprises with a strong and professional voice before all the national, European and international Governments and governmental agencies.
