The 2017 has been a year of collaboration and network growth for the Millenium Technology Center. After the partnership signed with Gabriele Bruni, Giuseppe Leonardi and Roberto Spata, Marco Giannoni has joined the Millenium family. The values that drove the development of the highly skilled network of sales and customer support are made in Italy, a 360 degrees’ customer service and the development of cutting edge technologies, which are the core values of the company. The last step of the strategy is the partnership with Marco Giannoni, which brings an important technological contribution thanks to his experience as professional sailor, with a remarkable participation in the America’s Cup with il Moro di Venezia, and thanks to the manufacturing in his sailmaker company. Thanks to this partnership, Giannoni joins the technical and sport team of the Millenium Technology Center and his company will sell Millenium® Archè and Millenium® Monolithic sails and it will produce dacron and one design sails up to 30 feet, with a focus on gand prix and mega yachts programs. Giannoni comments “There are different reasons that motivated me to work with the Millenium Technology Center and all are intuitive. I have collaborated with the Center for thirty years and I worked there as employee from 1985 to 1987. I shared the experience of il Moro di Venezia with Davide Innocenti from 1989 to 1992 as we both were part of the team. Therefore, the respect between skilled people is at the heart of this partnership. I expect this union to lead to technological advances, thanks to the mutual synergies that we can harness.” MARCO GIANNONI, is sailmaker of extensive experience and professional sailor since 1987. He sailed in national and international regattas in different classes (Finn, Contender, 470, FD; offshore races: IOR, ILC, IMS, IRC). In 1990 he closed his sailmaker company activity, the Star Sails in Lido Camaiore, to participate in America’s Cup in San Diego with il Moro di Venezia, which reached the finals and won the Louis Vuitton Cup. In 1994 he reopened the company, named Euro Sails at first and then Be1 Sails in 2008. For further information: Marco Giannoni Mob. +39 333 8500645 E-mail: Veleria Marco Holm S.r.l.
