Farewell to shipwright Cataldo Aprea

“Today is a sad day for us. He leaves us one of our Brothers, one of the pillars of our company. Cataldo was a good, silent man, a tireless worker, always ready to help us in times of difficulty. Many of us learned from him, his ageless art. His job was to start the workmanship of a boat, just as he did with our company, start it and put his good before everything. We will miss him at the shipyard, his hands will be irreplaceable, but he will be with us every day. Our grief goes out to his family, his wife and children. Our promise is that they will never be left alone.”
