Andrea Agostinelli, President of the Port System Authority of the Southern Tyrrhenian and Ionian Seas; Enrico Giovannini, Minister of Infrastructures and Sustainable Mobility; Luigi Lucà, CEO of Toyota Motor Italy; Gianpiero Strisciuglio, CEO Mercitalia; Giampiero Strisciuglio, CEO of Mercitalia; Alberto Viano, CEO of LEASEPLAN. Introduced by Marco Piuri, FNM General Manager and Trenord CEO.

Italy’s position in the Mediterranean has always characterised our country as a physical, cultural, economic and political ‘turntable’ bridging and connecting three continents. This vocation has been experienced and understood in different ways depending on the historical context, but today it is considered as strategic both for our country and for the global context. It is strategic in political terms, as a key relational and cultural link between Europe, Asia and Africa; as a central hub for the flows of goods and people in such a vast area, as key gateway and corridor in the wider global context. The challenges lying ahead are many: the energy transition
and the impacts on light mobility, the necessarily systemic approach that must be put in place for the development and use of hydrogen, the upgrade of the infrastructure system not only of the ports, an adequate governance structure and decision-making models, put the enhancement of the sea economy in its different sectors. If these challenges are tackled with the right approach, they can become a development factor, also thanks to the correct use of the funds and projects financed by the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP). We will have the opportunity to discuss these issues with some of the key players in this context.
