“We are honoured – stated the President Sergio Prete – for this new prize received by the Faros project in such an international prestigious context as the Summit Blue Forum Italia Network of Gaeta is. The Port of Taranto is still a leading Authority for the sustainable innovation of the territory: indeed, with Faros the Port Network Authority wanted to bet on innovation as a marking point able to attract the main development assets related to maritime economy and to port and logistic activities, making the Ionian port not only the core of innovation at local level but also the hub where to develop new entrepreneurial ideas capable of contributing to the blue and sustainable growth of the whole country.”
