Book it now: Baglietto, A Dream on the Sea photography exhibition

In the run up to the 93rd annual Palio del Golfo regatta, which takes place in La Spezia, Italy on August 5, local yacht builder Baglietto is hosting a photography retrospective tracing the history of this illustrious Italian yachting brand. Baglietto, A Dream on the Sea, is being held at the former Customs Authority of the Port of La Spezia and is now in its second edition, having first taken place at the Palazzo San Giorgio in Genova in April.

The exhibition has been curated by Emanuela Baglietto, an architecture partner at the Renzo Piano Building Workshop and descendent of yard founder Pietro Baglietto.

Aided by architect Matteo Orlandi and through Emanuela's exclusive insight into the yard, the exhibition tells the story of Baglietto from its foundation in 1854 to its modern incarnation as a premier name in Italian boatbuilding.

Starting with the yard’s first gozzi and running through its yachting history from early pleasure and racing boats and the MAS of the World Wars to modern innovations and exceptional builds such as Lucky Me, Andiamo and Ridoc, the exhibition also examines the people behind the brand that have helped to make it a builder of such high esteem.

“Organising the exhibition gave me the opportunity to do the huge job of research and historical cataloguing of images and stories of the shipyard of which I had only a vague perception,” said Emanuela Baglietto. “I rediscovered the incredible number of projects realised as a result of the irreducible search for technological evolution and the constant desire for experimentation that has always characterised my family.”

Baglietto, A Dream on the Sea runs until August 5, 2018, visit bagliettoshipyardexhibition.com for more information.
