Since 1861, the year of its founding, the Italian Navy has written and recounted its story in order that an itinerary full of heroic deeds and values ​​maintained over time is not forgotten.

In order to preserve a cultural heritage of this magnitude, the need arose for a timely commemoration of those who have contributed to the history of Italy.

That is the reason behind the establishment of June 10 as Italian Navy Day, celebrated in memory of one of the most significant acts of war carried out at sea during the First World War: the Premuda venture.

For the same reason, the Monument to the Italian Sailor was inaugurated in 1933 in the port of Brindisi and is the site of an annual day of remembrance for sailors missing at sea.
