Serving" traffic in Mediterranean ports
Maritime History Meetings, IX edition

Event in live streaming on Zoom system

Registration required




The aim of the Maritime Cluster that will meet in Naples in the week from 28 September to 3 October of Naples Shipping Week 2020 is to reflect on the disastrous effects of COVID-19 to overcome the crisis, regain confidence and aim at the recovery of the entire maritime sector. The main objective is to look beyond the health and economic emergency to be ready to restart. As already happened in previous editions organized in Naples from 2014, history will also make its contribution. On September 29th from 4pm-7pm there will be the IX Maritime History Meeting at the "service" of traffic in Mediterranean ports organized in streaming on the Zoom platform by Raffaella Salvemini (CNR-ISMed) where will be discussed on the management of traffic services in some Mediterranean ports with a focus on policies, interventions of public and private actors and their contribution to the evolution and progress of navigation in the Mediterranean countries.

Over the centuries, both inside and outside the various emergencies, there have been countless changes in the field of trade and maritime traffic at the same time cause and effect of the improvement of the organization and the way in which trade took place with repercussions on the means used, on the legal, economic, fiscal, health categories.

The idea is to tell you about the use of the sea for communications, for the transfer of goods and people but also and above all the organization of services, including that of maritime health, which accompany the development of ports and traffic in sea cities such as Naples, Genoa, Ancona, Palermo and Trieste.
