The PIETRO MICCA is the oldest italian triple-expansion steam-powered merchant ship and is in a class of her own for her state of preservation and operational performance, having been engaged in regular port activities on a par with modern tugs until 1993.

She was built as a sea-going steam tugboat by Rennoldson & Son, in Southshields, Newcastle (GB) and in 1905 was registered as a steam-powered tug, Schooner Class, in the Coastal Sector Register in Naples, in whose waters she was to spend most of her days.

A life fulfilled in the world of work and all that it entails: ships and seamen from distant lands with tales and legends of cargoes and the knowledge that a frayed cable could cost lives, that a tow badly aligned could cause a ship to capsize. It is memories like these which amply justify the over a century aged Pietro Micca’s honest pride.

And even today she has not been pensioned off. At the beginning of 1996 she was bought by the “Associazione Amici delle Navi a Vapore G. L. Spinelli” (the G.L. Spinelli “Friends of Steamships Association”), in order to save a part of our cultural heritage from certain demolition and make her still valid services available to the public.
The Pietro Micca is always ready and waiting to put to sea again to work for her future, as historical witness of the old technology. Nowadays the Pietro Micca is mooring in Fiumicino (Rome) inside the TECNOMAR shipyard and ready for new adventures.

The oldest and largest ice-cream parlour in Italy is situated in Rome, at number 65 to 67 of Via Principe Eugenio. The Fassi business dates back to 1880, when it appears as commercial premises authorized to sellice and serve beer. Founder of the four-generation ice-cream making dynasty was Giacomo, who opened a small parlour in Rome at Via delle Quattro Fontane, near Piazza Barberini. Giacomo’s son, Giovanni known as the Sovereign Ice-Cream Maker, was later to follow in his father’s foot steps, concentrating exclusively on ice-cream and moving the premises frst to Piazza Navona, then to Via Piave (from 1907 to 1927) and finally to Via Principe Eugenio, which has beenthe only Fassi parlour in Rome for the past sixty years. In 1961 the helm of the huge ice-cream making business (a 700 m2 shop, of which 200 m2 are taken up by the ice-cream workshop) was taken by Leonida, under whom, thanks to the fund of experience passed on to him by his father, the Fassi name continues today to receive kudos.For over 10 years, until 1989, Leonida held the office of vice-president director of the Italian Federation of Businesses belonging to “Confcommercio” (the general confederation of Italian commerce and tourism). Anong the many awards presented to the Fassi Company, the certificate conferred by the Rome Chamber of Commerce, attesting to over 50 years of business, with a gold medal, for allegiance to labour and economic improvement, stands out against the rest.
