After the delivery of the degrees, in the presence of the student brigade, Admiral Milazzo congratulated the 3rd class of the "Zeus" course, inviting them to think about the near future "…after the individual oath and graduation, you are about to conclude the demanding training course that began just under three years ago. After the summer, you will reach your first destination on board the units of the naval squadron and at the commands of the Harbor offices present throughout the national territory. They are waiting for you. Be professional and authoritative, be ready to throw your heart beyond the obstacle".
"A new chapter in our career as soldiers and sailors has opened today. Not a goal, but a starting point. We will continue to work with commitment and dedication to honor the rank that today, excited, we received from the hands of Admiral commander." the comment of the head of course Mattia Zuccarini, after breaking ranks.
