Roberto is died D' Alexander, president of the port of Genoa in the critics Eighties

Left after five years the guide of the CAP, it obtained managing assignments in Agusta, Zanussi, Pirelli and Fiat

Tuesday is died Roberto D' Alexander, manager that between the numerous covered managing and institutional assignments has been president of the Independent Port Authority of Genoa (CAP) assuming the charge on 14 February of 1984, moment in which the harbour port of call of the capital of Liguria it crossed a most serious crisis with a strong contraction of the traffics. A assignment assumed hardly four days before the election of Paride Batini to consul of the Company Unica Lavoratori Merci Varie (CULMV). Two figures, those of Of been born Alexander and Batini in 1935 and 1934, than in that blustering divennero time the two emblems view opposed of the possible development of the genoese port: first, then disowned for the entire local harbour community and tax to the presidency of the harbour agency from then the Prime Minister of ministers Bettino Craxi, it was convinced that the decrease of the rates of cargo handling in port and, in particular, the riassunzione by the CAP of the direction of the harbour operations would have allowed with the port of call of riottenere the confidence of the markets and of the international operators necessary for its I throw again; the second considered that to the harbour workers the autonomy necessary had to be insured in order to organize the activities of cargo and drainage of the goods in efficient way.

Opposite positions that entered quickly in conflict to the first decision of Of Alexander: that to freeze the rates and to reduce the consistency of the teams of harbour. Two view antithetic that was illustrated in two programmatici documents. Little more than three months from its takeover to the presidency of the CAP Of Alexander it introduced the "programmatiche Lines for the development of the port of Genoa", a volume quickly renamed "Blue Book" in which, with entrepreneurial logic, a reorganization of the various fields of activity of the port was proposed that successively they will be assigned in management to society controlled to 51% from the CAP and participated by the CULMV and the private and placed harbour enterprises under the supervision, the coordination and the authority of the Independent Port Authority. A document to which the harbour ones - after some month - they answered with the their "Red Book".

A contrast, between which some entrepreneurs with they joined "Green Book" centralized on the proposal to free lance manage an area of the port, than was sharpened in the next years with a repeated series of been extended strikes and led on February 7, 1987 in the commissariamento of the decided CULMV gives Of Alexander, provision then cancelled little more than a month after from the Regional administrative court that deliberated I re-integrate of Batini and the entire summit of the Only Company.

Two years after Alexander, made bitter above all for the lacked support to its action by entrepreneurial fields that had insured person to it to him, left the Independent Port Authority in order to occupy managing assignments in privately-owned companies and to be replaced to the guide of the CAP from admiral Giuseppe Francese, quickly called at the beginning to face a new primed crisis of 1989 from the assumed autoritativi provisions from then the minister of Marina Mercantile, Giovanni Prandini, in order to reform the legislation harbour and meanwhile to unhinge the monopoly of the job in the ports entrusted to the harbour companies abolishing harbour reserve of labor and granting private to the faculties to recruit labor directly. But this is another history of which Of Alexander she was not more protagonist taken as era from the challenging obtained managing assignments in companies as Agusta, Zanussi, Pirelli and Fiat.
