Last week the Italian Architect Giuseppe de Jorio sadly passed away. Mr. de Jorio has been designing vessels since the early 1960s, and is the owner of De Jorio Design which since its establishment has worked on countless prestigious projects over the years, including the 46.7 metre Mohamedia (now Adoria), the 86 metre Nabila (now Kingdom 5KR), and the 62 metre Luisella (now Esmeralda).
Mondomarine, who has worked closely with Mr. de Jorio over the past few decades, made the following statement commemorating Mr. de Jorio: “Mondomarine wants to remember him [as] a very dear architect to the yard, having designed the first yacht built by Cantieri Navali Campanella in 1975, Mohamedia, [one of] the biggest yachts in the world at the time. Giuseppe de Jorio has been one of the most influential architects in the global naval industry.”
Mr. de Jorio’s last official appearance was at the Centennial Celebration of the Cantieri Navali Campanella in Savona on September 14th. He will be sadly missed by the industry.
