#Shipping Global Dynamics

The viral pneumonia epidemic will certainly have medium and long-term consequences, but they are still undefined. Too often ideological beliefs or hopes influence analyses and predictions. However, it is certain that if the consequences will lead to a reorganization of the economy based on the international division of labor, shipping will be affected. Understanding how this will be is the goal of this session.


  • Existential challenges, strategic sectors and national security: end of globalization or China choking?
  • Shipping and international trade: will either the routes or the goods change, or both?
  • The strategy of the Great Powers and the Freedom of the Sea
  • Italy in a Mediterranean that’s no longer mare nostrum
  • Italian maritime traffic: how it can develop further?
  • Naval gigantism, stop or relaunch?
  • Is the reign of the container coming to an end?
  • What use is the sea for Italy?
