The Fleets

Fratelli Lavarello / Società di Navigazione a Vapore Fratelli Lavarello

Formed in 1887 by Pietro and Enrico Lavarello, sons of the late G. B. Lavarello to run passenger services from Genoa to South American ports. By 1891 the company was in financial difficulties and was put into liquidation. The surviving ships were taken over by La Veloce.
