The new professional association was founded by Danilo Fabricatore Irace, who was recently confirmed as chief pilot of the port of Genoa for another four years.

In the same hours that the Italian Federation of Port Pilots (Fedepiloti) announced its 75th meeting scheduled in Rome, Assopiloti's "presentation letter" arrived in the mailboxes of professional associations and institutions on 8 April 2022.

The person directly involved in SHIPPING ITALY simply stated that the information about the creation of the new association called Assopiloti had been sent to the Ministry of Infrastructure and Sustainable Mobility, the Port Captains' Corps and the other professional associations. According to its own information, its members include almost all the pilots of the port company of Genoa, as well as some other members in Ravenna and Livorno.

"Assopiloti" is thus the third largest pilots' association after "Fedepiloti", the association chaired by Luigi Mennella, and "Unione Piloti" chaired by Vincenzo Bellomo.

Irace: “Il nostro porto non è rappresentato a livello nazionale”


Captain Danilo Fabricatore Irace, a native of Naples, master pilot since 1999 and former president of Fedepiloti, was appointed chief pilot of the Port of Genoa last December for another four-year term, having already held the post for the period 2018-2022. His reappointment was unanimously approved by those present at the last meeting of the current pilots.

For Italian pilots, this means a further fragmentation of their representation vis-à-vis the authorities and the shipping industry.
