About Acqua Pia Antica Marcia S.p.a.:
The “Società dell’Acqua Pia Antica Marcia” was established in the middle XIX century, with the intention of bringing the ancient Acqua Marcia back to Rome. The Marcian aqueduct, connected to Rome in 144 B.C. by the magistrate Quintus Marcius Rex and considered the best supply of the city for the high quality of its waters, was interrupted during the invasion of the Goths (537-538 A.D.), together with other water ducts. From that time, Rome was without channelled water for about eight centuries. In 1868, the “Anglo Romana Water Company”, subsequently named “Società Anonima dell’Acqua Marcia”, became the “Società dell’Acqua Pia Antica Marcia”. This name was a tribute to Pope Pio IX, whose economic intervention was of fundamental importance to realize this work. On 10. September 1870, the first Acqua Marcia jet of water gushed out into today’s Piazza della Repubblica. With more than 140 years of history, today Acqua Marcia is the oldest Italian real estate company. Since 2012, its chairman is Camillo B. Caltagirone. The strategic diversification of the Group’s activities has led to the development of new productive assets, mainly in the tourist sector. The Acqua Marcia Group is currently active in four sectors: real estate, hotels, airports and tourist ports. The real estate sector develops building, directional, commercial and residential projects. The complexes can be built from new or as part of restoration and redevelopment plans of old industrial areas, in line with the corporate strategy which aims at architectural conversion of existing structures without altering their morphology. The restoration of Mulino Stucky, Mulino Pantanella and Mulino Santa Lucia and the future conversion of the areas Chiari e Forti in Treviso, Frigoriferi in Milan, and Scalera in Venice show how, by planning a new use, the charm of old industrial archaeology remains intact and available to anyone. The adventure of Acqua Marcia in the tourist sector began in 1998, through its subsidiary Acqua Marcia Turismo (AMT). Today, the Acqua Marcia Group owns six important historical residences in Sicily: Villa Igiea, Grand Hotel et des Palmes, and Excelsior Palace Hotel in Palermo; San Domenico Palace Hotel in Taormina; Excelsior Grand Hotel in Catania; Grand Hotel des Etrangers et Miramare in Ortigia (Siracusa). Molino Stucky stands out in Venice, on the Giudecca Canal; it is the biggest 5 star hotel of the Lagoon, with a large conference centre with a maximum capacity of 2000 people. A partnership agreement with Hilton exists for the hotels in Palermo and Molino Stucky. Even Rome is part of the projects of the Group, which is completing a hotel dedicated to business and conference tourism in Via Giustiniano Imperatore. Two golf courses in Croara (Piacenza) and Nettuno (Rome) must be added to this list. The Società dell'Acqua Pia Antica Marcia joined the airport sector in 2000, following the liberalization of the airport assistance market decided by the EU. The Group operates through its subsidiaries, ATA Handling and Ali Trasporti Aerei, providing commercial handling services in various national airports and managing the private airport of Milano Linate, the European leader in executive air traffic. Today, the ATA Group serves more than 60 flight companies, with more than 8 million passengers a year, and is the first private operator in the national field of airport services. Since 2005, the Company also operates in the tourist port sector, for which it is involved in the landworks of San Lorenzo al Mare moorings, in the realization of the Imperia port, which aims at becoming one of the main tourist docks of the Mediterranean Sea, of the new tourist port of Siracusa, of the future port of Civitavecchia, which will recover the splendour and architecture of the ancient project of Bernini, and of the new port of Fiumicino, which should become the leading private network in the scenario of national nautical tourism.
