A pinch of fear but no injuries last night, Tuesday 4 January, in the ancient port of Genoa for the fall of two pieces of the bow (the front) of the Galleon Neptune, the attraction for years anchored in the sea of the Porto Antico, a few meters from the Aquarium.
It happened after twenty: to secure the boat, built for the movie Polanski Pirates, but for years they have intervened among the possible destinations of tourists strolling around the ancient port two squads of firefighters who then have checks to verify if the managers of the Galleon have carried out the maintenance works required by the regulations. It is not the first time that the firefighters are forced to “board” the Pirate Galleon, years ago in fact a small fire had occurred on the stern.
Neptune was built in 1986 by director Roman Polanski for the film Pirates starring Walter Matthau.
The boat was built in a Tunisian shipyard and is sailing and registered in the maritime register of Tunisia, as can be seen from Tunisian flag a pope. Nettuno, made for sailing, has an auxiliary engine that allows you to navigate at a speed of three knots.
