The Harbourmaster and Coast Guard's Office is in fact a branch of the Italian Navy, with tasks covering all aspects of civilian navigational safety at sea.
The Harboumasters oversee navigation at sea and, as far as ports are concerned, they ensure the safety of shipping operations, the organisation and proper performance of port services, including pilotage, tugging, mooring and ship to shore transfer services.
