A love song to Italy
"The Italy of foreigners is a perception: the rolling hills with olive trees, the sun-kissed steps of ancient monuments, white wine and fresh tomatoes. The Italy of Italians is more complex: passionate, intense, full of contrasts. In my eyes, Italy’s Finest is a national pride stemming from the traditions passed down from one generation to the next”, says Tihany. “It is a place of dreams, where time seems to slow down”. Here, style is king, beauty is queen and the spirit of the people can change the world. These ideas of Pride, Taste, Time, Style and Spirit have helped us provide an interpretation of the theme of the ships”.
