Armatori and Fratelli Frassinetti
Topic: Yachts and Motor Yachts

Armatori and Fratelli Frassinetti

 

 A Napoli, a metà del secolo XIX il Bureau Veritas aveva avuto un enorme prestigio, che è documentato da testi, pubblicazioni, partecipazioni a mostre, convegni, ecc.

Nel 1871 ci fu in Napoli una grande esposizione marittima ed il Bureau Veritas vi partecipò, per iniziativa di Gaetano Maresca, mostrando in modo assai chiaro a mezzo di modelli di scafo di epoche diverse, di quanto le regole di costruzione dettate dal Bureau Veritas e applicate in certi cantieri del napoletano, avessero migliorato la solidità e la razionalità delle strutture. Una particolare notorietà aveva avuto il Bureau Veritas in Italia nel decennio '60-'70 in relazione alla fondazione a Genova, nel 1861, del Registro Italiano Navale. Infatti, dopo vivaci scambi di opinioni tra gli esponenti di vari ambienti armatoriali e assicurativi, la questione divenne oggetto di dibattito sui giornali nel 1867. Come si è detto prima, il Presidente del Bureau Veritas, Bal, scrisse una lettera al Corriere Mercantile di Genova in risposta ad una nota apparsa su questo giornale, naturalmente a difesa dell’universalità e dell’imparzialità del Bureau Veritas; certi ambienti napoletani si costituirono pure tutori del Bureau Veritas, con articoli sul giornale L’Avvenire del 3 e 4 aprile 1867 e con la pubblicazione di un fascicolo intitolato Il registro italiano della società di mutua assicurazione della marineria ligure ed il Veritas Universale di Parigi. Esame comparativo di Emilio Biraghi. Altre manifestazioni di vivacità degli ambienti marittimi italiani su questo tema si ebbero nel 1882, quando fu costituito un Veritas Italiano a cura di Francesco Rolla di Genova. 
Il lavoro di classificazione delle navi si svolgeva intanto regolarmente e molte erano pure le costruzioni sotto sorveglianza.
Negli annunci del Corriere Mercantile di Genova la classe Bureau Veritas figurava fra i requisiti di qualità delle navi che venivano a cercare carico in quel porto.
Nel registro del 1870, scomparse ormai le bandiere sarda, siciliana, napoletana, toscana, figurano le navi italianeCORRIERA DI TRIESTE costruita a Messina, il CORSO costruito a Chiavari da Briasco, il CORTESE ed il COSMOScostruiti da Cadenaccio di Sestri Ponente (cantiere antenato dell’Ansaldo). 
Il COSMOS fu una nave di grandi qualità, ordinata dai F.lli Frassinetti di Genova, di 70 ml. con imponente alberatura e velatura. Comandata da un Frassinetti, filava a 14 nodi: traversava l’atlantico con scalo a Montevideo, poi doppiava il Capo Horn e raggiungeva Callao in Perù.

In moltissimi documenti dell’ambiente marittimo Bureau Veritas viene citato, sempre con indicazioni di stima e di prestigio, per tutto il Secolo XIX.
Questa sua posizione non è mai venuta meno; anzi la reputazione dell’Istituto si accresce e si estende ulteriormente da quando vengono iniziati i controlli sugli impianti industriali.
Intorno agli anni 1920-1930 si eseguono verifiche su prodotti siderurgici destinati all’esportazione, su motori, su macchine speciali. La stessa industria italiana ricorre al Bureau Veritas per far controllare in Francia, Belgio, Germania prodotti e macchinari di cui si approvvigiona.

Sailing Ship Cosmos Part II
Topic: Yachts and Motor Yachts

 

I clipper furono gli ultimi bastimenti a vela apparsi dopo l'epoca napoleonica, con grandi alberi, una quinta ed anche una sesta vela quadra. Dotati di un gran numero di vele di strallo avevano, quando completamente invelati, un aspetto fantastico.Con le loro forme snelle e la prua molto affinata solcavano l'Atlantico ad una velocità eccezionale: anche 12-14 nodi.Il clipper classico aveva tre alberi e portava fino a 24 vele, una randa, sei stragli e tre fiocchi. Di grandi dimensioni, superava di solito le 1000 tonnellate di stazza.Il "Cutty Sark", trasformato in museo, fa ancora bella mostra di sé sul Tamigi.Il 10 dicembre 1865, nel cantiere dei fratelli Cadenaccio a Genova Sestri, per conto dei fratelli Frassinetti di Genova (fra i più importanti armatori vettori di emigranti e di merci per Montevideo e Callao) venne varato il "Cosmos" un clipper lungo 70 metri, largo 12,70 m, con una portata di 2800 t. Aveva 6 vele quadre su ciascuno dei tre alberi e poteva raggiungere anche 14 nodi. Fu il più grande veliero italiano in legno, uno dei maggiori d'Europa, in grado di competere con quelli di Boston e Baltimora. Il veliero aveva scafo in rovere e quercia, la carena foderata in fogli di rame, le rifiniture in teak dipinto in nero con fascia orizzontale bianca, una polena raffigurante l'universo.Per le sue caratteristiche tecniche ed estetiche rappresentava il meglio che la marineria del tempo potesse offrire. Poteva portare 40 passeggeri di prima classe in 20 cabine a due posti e disponeva di 600 brande per emigranti. L'equipaggio era composto da 35 persone.Salpò da Genova per il suo primo viaggio il 15 febbraio del 1866 al comando del Capitano Filippo Frassinetti, figlio di uno degli armatori. Il viaggio fu un vero successo commerciale e nautico. La nave risultò molto maneggevole e veloce, tanto da meritarsi l'appellativo di "Freccia del mare". Fece un secondo viaggio al comando del Capitano Antonio Farina. Il 15 dicembre del 1869 salpò al comando di Capitan Giovanni Celesia, ma a Capo Horn incontrò uragani di particolare violenza per cui, in avaria, dovette ritornare a Montevideo dove ricevette sommarie riparazioni e il 15 aprile 1870 ripartì per Genova al comando del primo ufficiale Capitan Sebastiano Questa.

Per la dura concorrenza dei piroscafi per emigranti, per la riduzione dell'attività dei Frassinetti che al momento non erano in grado di utilizzare una nave così grande, il Cosmos rimase sette anni in disarmo alle Grazie (La Spezia). Nel gennaio del 1879 a bordo scoppiò un incendio ed il veliero andò distrutto.

Nel museo navale di Genova Pegli si può ammirare un quadro dell'Arpe raffigurante il veliero che più di tutti rappresentò la sfida dell'antica vela al nuovo vapore.

 

Clipper:

 

 

It is one of the last sail ships appeared after the napoleonic epoch which added on the big masts a fifth and a sixth square sail, They had a great number of sails of stay, were completely sailed with a fantastic aspect. With their slim forms and a very thin bow, they crossed the Atlantic Ocean with an ecceptional speed: even 12-14 knots.The classical Clipper had three masts and brought up to 24 sails, a spanker, six stays and three jibs.They had big dimensions and usually exceeded 1000 tons of tonnage. The Cutty Sark, transformed into a museum, is always a beauty on the Thames.In 1865, the Cosmos has been launched in Sestri Ponente. It was a clipper long 70 metres for 2800 tons of dead weight with a wood coppered hull.It had 6 square sails at each of the three masts with which it could reach even 14 knots of speed.It has been destroyed by a fire in La Spezia in 1879.
