Italian Navy Calendar

The 24 pictures that appear in the calendar will walk us through a journey that links the past of World War I to the present, in a series of photos of ships, planes, submarines, naval bases and, especially, men. The photos of the Navy today are due to Fabrizio Villa.

Each month goes together with a picture comparing the past and the future, reminding us that ships, arms and technology may change but men and their needs don't. The mission of the Italian Navy stays the same, being at the service of the comunity, yesterday as well as today.

Now, like then, the control of the seas and the oceans, a common resource of humanity, is a basic requirement for security inland, as well as an strategic and vital asset for the economic development of nations and the international community, in accordance with the idea of advanced defense to guarantee internal security.

The history of the Italian Navy is a valuable heritage that represents their foundations; a heritage that must be spread and known by the whole community, especially, by young generations, in order for them to draw the appropriate considerations and the right stimuli to build a better future.
