Gastaldi Global Travel Srl
Anniversary Celebrations...

July 2010

Hundreds of people took part in an evening of celebration for the 150th Anniversary of the Gastaldi Group. Guests included several partner companies representing the timeline of the group’s history of relationships through the years which helped propel the success of the all-Genoese firm owned by the Cerruti Family.

The truly emotional evening took place at an outstanding historic site in a superb natural setting and a friendly atmosphere.

A video showing important moments in the Gastaldi entrepreneurial venture was on display and special acknowledgments were extended to leading International companies within Gastaldi: eighteen companies operating in the fields of Shipping & Transport, Port & Logistics,  Insurance, Travel and Tourism, and Real Estate – each one headed by a next-generation family member.

On a stage set up in the splendid park of the villa, members of the Cerruti Family were joined by exceptional partners and tribute was paid to them for all their work and support for the Gastaldi group.

Giovanni Cerruti, President of the Gastaldi group acknowledged all the wonderful achievements of the South Korean ship owner Hanjin, partner of the Gastaldi shipping agency Hanjin Italy.

Agostino Cerruti, head of the Insurance division, acknowledged Lloyd’s of London, the prestigious British Institution, which has maintained a business relationship with Gastaldi since 1949.

Michele Cerruti, who runs both the Tour Operating division (Gastaldi 1860, Gastaldi USA, Jet Set Voyages) and the Incoming, Congress & Incentive division (Gastaldi Global, Congresship) handed over two acknowledgments. The first one went to Maritz, a leading American Company in the Corporate & Incentive Travel, for working in closed partnership with Gastaldi Global on several business projects. The other went to Shell Italia in honor of their longstanding relationship.

Next on stage was Pietro Cerruti, who is in charge of the Gastaldi Real Estate division and Vice President of the Children’s Kidney Disease Fund at Gaslini Institute in Genoa. He offered Ms Rosanna Gusmano, President of the Institute, three scientific research scholarships at the Nephrology Lab.

Among the eminent personalities in attendance was Ms Marta Vincenzi, current Mayor of Genoa. She honored Gastaldi’s entrepreneurial excellence by awarding Gastaldi’s former President, Mr Filippo Cerruti, with “Bigo d’Oro,” the prestigious Genoese prize.

Also very welcome was Mr Bartolomeo Giachino, Under-Secretary of State for Transport, who shared a moment on stage speaking of historic events in the Transport logistics, illustrating Gastaldi’s important contributions to the sector.

Mr. Giancarlo Carrera, President of euromic, also took part in the proceedings and offered his heartfelt congratulations for the historic occasion on behalf of all of Gastaldi Global Travel’s fellow euromic members.

Completed with a lively musical performance, the evening was an opportunity to celebrate and reminisce about everything the Gastaldi Group has achieved in its distinguished history with the members of the Cerruti family – a large, passionate family that has, throughout the years and over several generations, combined tradition and innovation, efficiency and reliability, and always looked towards its future.
