An exciting visual journey that looks at the history of Italy’s foremost river-based shipyard.
Through the main vessels built at the shipyard in Adria, the book tells the story of four generations of the Duò Family, who have run the company for nearly a century. From the wooden boats for the local fishermen to the most modern cruisers of the Italian Navy, not forgetting the water buses of Venice and the ships of the Italian Customs, the books brings together a mix of technical details, family anecdotes and spectacular images.
The book also talks about the future of the shipyard, which sees Vittoria’s naval know-how in the military sector put to use on a new project: Vittoria Yachts. Here the extreme attention to detail and the continuous quest for quality, developed over decades of military and civilian commissions, enable this new brand to immediately stand out in the global market for luxury yachts, creating innovative and unique vessels, that always satisfy the owner’s requests and meet the highest standards of quality.
