Executive Officer Ristori

“As ITS Cavour's experience in Norfolk and in the United States comes to an end and the ship begins the Atlantic crossing that will bring she back to the homeland, I would like to send you my heartfelt thanks on my behalf and on behalf of the Cavour crew, for the genuine and day-to-day support that you never made us lack during our stay in the States. The inability to visit the United States of America was certainly the limitation that most grieved all the crew members, many of whom - in their all lives -never had the opportunity to visit your wonderful country. Not being able to go ashore also constituted an objective impediment to fulfilling the
needs of each individual, but the support that you provided, always with a genuine spirit of
sacrifice and  enthusiasm, always with incisiveness and impeccable effectiveness, was always a reason for relief for all of us, as well as the best welcome we could get from the United States of America. It will not be easy to forget the constant availability that you have always shown at any time of day or night, towards us. I hope the future will bring me back to the US, maybe with some other ship. God bless America. Arrivederci...and thanks for the cap. XO”

Admiral Ciappina

"You are right, It's been very tough for all of us. This is the reason why your support has been appreciated even more: without your help simple things could have been impossible to achieve.
I am sure we will have other opportunities in the future to know each other better. I will cherish the words you spent for our friendship and alliance in order to gain and preserve a safer world.
Thanks again on behalf of all my crew! GC”

Admiral Nicola Pavone

"I thank you very much for the message you sent me when you were back home after meeting in La Spezia on board the "New Duilio"  on the occasion of the magnificent gathering of the 30th anniversary of the "our Duilio" training campaign to Australia. I greatly appreciated your commitment to e with us once again, sowing that your action was not just a demanding business, but a real and warm participation in our unforgettable maritime experience.

It gave me immense pleasure to see you again and to have you with us on this significant occasion .I really wanted you to be with us, because your support action was fundamental to the success of the naval campaign, ensuring a prompt and decisive support in every port, solving situations that were often very difficult, which on some occasions could have undermined our mission. I also very much appreciated the little gift that you gave me on this occasion, the tie clip of "our Duilio", which you had guarded over all these years. On behalf of our crew and myself, I am wishing you and your family al the best wishes for the holiday season and upcoming year. A sailor's embrace, hoping new opportunities to meet you again."
