Giada and Agata on board the "Palinuro"Two girls from Massa Marittima leave aboard the Navy's Palinuro ship for a training experience from Bari to Trieste, thanks to the Associazione Marinai D'Italia. An opportunity that rewards the local community and offers young people an extraordinary experience of seafaring life.For a city that certainly does not boast a maritime tradition, the news that two girls from Massa are on board the "Nave Palinuro", a training ship of the Italian Navy, for a training campaign is surprising and gratifying. For Giada Montomoli and Agata Malossi, it is an extraordinary experience, and after leaving from Bari they will arrive in Trieste. All thanks to the General Staff of the Navy which, once again this year, has proposed the possibility of embarking young members of the National Association of Italian Sailors, aged between 16 and 26, on training ships that carry out training campaigns. Both the president of the Piombino Anmi Group, Franco Lavagnini and Franco Ceccherini, expressed their satisfaction for this opportunity offered to Giada and Agata. "It is a recognition of the group of members from Massa - they said - present and active in our city not only as an institutional representation, but also as a social activity". For Giada, a 24-year-old university student, who has already prepared her thesis on Art History that she will discuss at Sapienza, and Agata, a 20-year-old student at the Hotel Management School, it is an extraordinary experience that will remain in their lives. The girls had chosen to participate through a specific application, forwarded through the Piombino section of the Anmi, and, after a selection in Rome, the good news of having been accepted for boarding.An experience lived not as passengers or tourists, for the two girls, but by experimenting with seafaring life aboard a Navy sailing ship used precisely for the summer practical training of the students of their training schools.
