Italian Navy's Flagship Frigate to Divert from Operations to MAST 2007

The Italian Navy's Andrea Doria, Horizon-Class frigate will grace MAST 2007.

Pembury, United Kingdom, September 19, 2007 --( Andrea Doria was launched in 2005 and delivered to the Italian Navy earlier this year.

In definitive testament to their commitment to the MAST series of events, Fincantieri and Finmeccanica have sponsored the presence of the Italian Navy's flagship vessel at this year's MAST conference and trade-show.

Pre-registered MAST participants will be able to visit the frigate - to be docked adjacent to/near the trade-show halls - during the three days of MAST (14th to 16th November), and an invitation-only function onboard is likely to be hosted by Finmeccanica and Fincantieri

Other vessels open to MAST 2007 visitors include NATO's research vessel "Alliance" and a Saettia-class patrol boat in use by the Genoa Coast Guard.
