Milan 10th July 2008 - Forty years of love for the sea celebrated by two centuries of musical excellence.
In the prestigious setting of the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Ferretti celebrated 40 years of challenges and love for the sea with all those who have contributed to the company's success.


About 1.000 guests and personalities from across the world attended this private concert, "A Tribute to the Sea", with which Ferretti, the yard that has become a worldwide ambassador for Made in Italy excellence, paid homage to the inspiration behind its success - the deep blue waters of the sea.


Through the music of the Philharmonic Orchestra of La Scala, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, chairman Norberto Ferretti, along with friends and collaborators, was offered a depiction of his intimate dialogue with the sea, the "special relationship" that has allowed the yard to blend form and function in the construction of unique crafts.


For one night the sea came to Milan, to receive Ferretti's special thanks.
