The campaign will bring Morosini’s students to La Spezia and Gaeta, to end in Venice on June 26th. On this occasion, the logistic support vessel will carry out a fuel leveling cycle of the main bases of the Navy.

After their first year of study at Morosini, the students are embarked for the first time on a “gray ship” of the Navy; unique experience during which they will acquire knowledge about the conduct of navigation, maritime art and life on board.

It is the second time that Nave Etna has been used as a training ship. Thanks to the characteristics of flexibility and the ability to support logistics, the ship is able to accommodate students in their first training experience.
