It is not a boat, it is an Itama, this is the premise on the timeless Italian open. Wandering around the Genoa Boat Show in 1979 you could have heard Giampiero Baglietto say that the Itama was "the most centered and interesting boat in its dimensions". This open was the all-Italian response of Mario Amati, founder of the Cantieri Navali di Roma that built the Itama, to the overwhelming power of the fast-commuters made in the USA that dominated the scene. To compete with the various Magnum and Donzi, just to mention two brands born from the genius of Don Aronow, speed was not enough: the boats had to be agile, but above all unmistakable in the line, and already at that time, it was synonymous with freedom. Its natural habitat? The Costa Smeralda and the coast. It is here that the Itama have their maximum diffusion, in those places where nautical trends are nourished. The clean and almost rigorous design of these boats cannot be confused with any American fast-commuter. The secret is balance, harmony between power and elegance. This formula, simple to say, has distinguished Itama from every other boat for over 50 years.
