Each file of the promotional materials is divided by company or single ship.
Only the members have full access to our archives online. However we made available at 20% of our catalogues to everybody. To remove this limit of access, it is sufficient to become a member of our Society clicking HERE. Indeed our members can enjoy the full access to the PREMIUM area and consult all the items it contains.
All our members can enjoy these new items by accessing the EPHEMERA ARCHIVE.

We are conscious that there is still a long road ahead, however we are confident that with your valuable help we can constantly enrich the collection online, and make it available to shiplovers and researchers interested in the history of Italian shipping and shipbuilding.

HOW TO SUSTAIN OUR ASSOCIATION
We are happy to offer all who are interested in liners the opportunity to sail with us on this voyage of discovery. The annual fare is 15€ for a Third Class ticket; 30€ in Second Class and 50€ in First Class.
A modest contribution by many makes it possible to keep alive a hugely important and fascinating aspect of our history. It is a page which records part of the lives of millions of men and women and of the entire nation.
When they embark, our members/passengers can gain access to many exclusive areas: browsing through the brochures of the time, reading authoritative articles dedicated to ships, companies, shipyards, etc. You will be informed each month by new material and further research in our archives which can be seen on line. You will receive by e-mail the newsletter “Programma di Bordo” containing information regarding new pages published on the site, accounts of our most recent initiatives and events and those which are planned for the future, plus an exclusive high-resolution digital image which you can scan and preserve in your own collection.
SHOP: NEW ARRIVALS AND PROMOTIONS
“A liner is one of the most perfect embodiments, so to speak, of our country, a synthesis of its most noble qualities, one of the most evident witnesses of our effective civilisation: because to produce a piece of poetry, a painting, a lyric opera or a film or even a great discovery, a few brains scattered here and there can be sufficient and around them there can even be a desert; but you cannot create an ocean liner if behind it there is not an organised multitude of men of a high intellectual and technical level. This is the reason why it is not mere rhetoric to say that a beautiful ship brings honour to the nation which built her.”
Dino Buzzati, Corriere della Sera
