Welcome: President of Ravenna Province

Ravenna is UNESCO Heritage of Humanity for artistic patrimony, which witness 1500 years of history but it is also a modern town with an advanced and developed economy.

The port, with more than 24 million tons handled through its wharves every year, is one of the most important in Italy and matches trading and industrial vocation.

The port houses numerous industries including chemicals, energy, metallurgy,

agricultural foodstuffs and offshore.

The latter is due to the discovery of large fields of natural gas along the coast of Ravenna in the fifties and sixties and to the following development of Eni in the fields of chemistry and energy.

Later on the institutional, economic and social features of Ravenna favoured the establishment of new Italian and foreign facilities.

The Province of Ravenna receives benefits deriving from the Structural Funds of the European Union. Large parts of the province are included in Objective 2 which will make special financing available to those investing in this area.

Offshore businesses play an avant-garde role, in fact highly specialised and technologically advanced local companies are known all over the world for their quality standards.

I wish to thank the numerous exhibitors and visitors who, by taking part in this event through the years, have contributed to make it unique in its sector.

Antonio Francesco Giangrandi
President of the Province of Ravenna
