COMPANY: ACCAME EMANUELE & F., RIUNIONE ARMAMENTO, NEPTUNIA, LA LIGURE-ROMANA
The forefather of the family, Luigi Accame was from Varazze. Using a little vessel, the Giuseppe Accame, he started trading cereals with Crimea, thus starting the family’s fortune.
During the second half of the 19th century the Accames owned and managed several sailing ships used to transport rice from Burma, wheat from California and guanos from Peru. They were among the few owners to survive the advent of the steamers.
The marriage between Luisa Accame and Alberto Ravano provided for a long future to the heirs in the shipping business.
