For Azimut|Benetti Group's 50th anniversary, a series of events are to be held in five global cities that are most significant to the group.

The Azimut S6, the largest yacht the square is able to host, will be presented as a real design object in collaboration with Design Pavilion.
On-site activities will include the Group's participation in two important "talks", one during the NASDAQ Impact Summit to discuss innovations in sustainability, and a second held in Times Square dedicated to the relationship between design and art.
There will also be edutainment activities for the little ones in collaboration with One Ocean Foundation, and an international competition inviting young and talented transportation designers and interior spaces designers to help design a new 10-metre day cruiser to be launched under the brand's Atlantis Collection.
The winner of the competition will receive an all-expenses paid three month internship at Azimut headquarters in Avigliana, Italy. The contest is part of a broader project that Azimut|Benetti Group has conceived to celebrate its 50° anniversary and underline its focus on design.
