From the foreword entitled Grazie Carlo: […] This book wants to be the testimony of your creed and I hope that the ratio between image and content is satisfactory: an image meant not to amaze, but to testify your creative and entrepreneurial life; a content that aims to indicate to ship-owners how you wanted your creations, because only with respect for originality the historical value can be preserved and your memory honoured.
