Gianni Zuccon between Bernardo and Martina Zuccon

A career that, at the very beginning, started outside the yachting industry and was happily ‘contaminated’ by different disciplines: among his first projects there was the contribution to the creation of a city for 50,000 people on the Congo riversides, in Zaire, while in the 80s he created several automotive projects and designed buildings for the European Space Agency. The first contribution of Gianni Zuccon in the yachting industry dates back to 1978, when he designed Technema 65 for the Posillipo shipyards. Six years earlier he had founded the Zuccon International Project studio together with architect Paola Galeazzi, Gianni’s wife. Today, Zuccon International Project have designed more than 430 yachts.
