"In this context - it has found Bernardo - they are in fact burning the times because it has been understood that it is a possibility that, as important companies of navigation have announced some, will be able to be verified already in the near future".

Pellizzari has stopped moreover on other problems legacies to the introduction of these ships, "deriving - it has specified - from the inadequacy of the legislative context, by the value of the prizes of the policies regarding those today applied on traditional ships, from the problems legacies to the cyberones, to those of harbour infrastructures and the trade-union relations until, icing on the cake, to the approval of a supernational normative new in order to navigate beyond territorial waters of that State that had some to approve of navigation".
