“May Ships” project – Livorno – May 2011
In May 2011 Castalia took part in the annual project “May Ships”, in the context of the 2011 Action Plan of the Livorno Town Council Europe Direct Centre, implemented in collaboration with the Harbour Office, the CIBM (Inter-University Marine Biology Centre), Arpa, the Nautical Institute “Cappellini”, the Provincial Education Office, the Port Authority, the L.E.M. (Livorno Euro Mediterranea) Foundation, and the firms Geopolaris and Labromare.
The event involves 200 high school students, with visits to some of the vessels moored in the vicinity of the Harbour Office area and made available by organisation and firms specialised in the sector dealing with the safeguarding of the sea and Italy’s coasts. On request of the Maritime Administration of Livorno, Castalia received students on board the vessel S/V COSTANTE NERI, deployed in the port of Livorno, remaining moored there for the duration of the event.
