Genoa - “The most important Italian tourist ports are in danger of failing.” UCINA, Assomarinas and Assonat are now raising the alarm regarding the Constitutional Court’s decision that will be pronounced on 10 January on the retroactive increase in State fees at tourist port facilities. “The decision will be decisive for the survival of 26 tourist ports,” the three associations pointed out in a press release. At issue is the application of the regulations on tourist-recreational concessions to tourist ports, which led to a ten-year legal battle. 26 tourist ports with a total of 15,000 boat berths have fought the retroactive application of the new regulation on State fees. With their accounts in hand, they claim that the retroactive increase in State fees could lead them to bankruptcy and would result in the loss of 15,000 boat berths.
