Case study Acquario
Acquario di Genova is the largest aquarium in Italy, with a total area of 9,700 square metres, consisting of an original body (39 tanks) and the "Nave Blu". The Acquario di Genova is managed by Costa Edutainment SpA, the Italian leader in the management of sites of interest and of large public and private facilities dedicated to recreational, cultural, educational, and scientific research.

- centralized services: unify both the facility / machinery management and the IT management
- manage Acquario head offices and the rest of the Aquarius Village
- implemente strategies focused on improving and optimizing the management of its assets which has led to the reduction of failures, the improvement of the equipment life cycle and the optimization of maintenance
