Castellammare di Stabia (Naples). The funeral of poor Davide Pignataro is held this morning at 09.00 in the co-cathedral of Castellamare di Stabia. The 31-year-old Stabiese, Princess Cruises’ first machine officer, had suddenly died on February 29 on board a cruise ship in Mexican territorial waters. Davide, esteemed and well-liked young man from Stabia following his father’s footsteps, graduated from the “Bixio” Technical Institute of Piano di Sorrento. After a swift career on cargo ships for just under two years he had switched to cruise ships. Both sudden and sad his departure from heart disease. The young officer was found in his cabin in bed with the phone in his hands. The shipping company wanted at the time to transfer the body with the same cruise ship to Miami in Florida in the United States of America, a sort of terminus and headquarters of the same company. Miami after the ritual autopsy that certified his death from heart disease, the body would have left for Italy; but due to the known events relating to the spread of Covid 19 on a global pandemic level, it has been kept in Miami for a long time. Only yesterday, finally, after a long journey did the mortal remains of the young engineer officer arrive in his hometown. A multi-episode odyssey lasting 124 days or more than 4 full months. Davide’s father: Guglielmo is a distinguished Naval Engineer admiral of the Navy from a few months at rest. Very well known and respected man and military, Guglielmo Pignataro was for a long time the General Director of the Corderia of the Navy located in Castellammare and facing the historic shipyards. The admiral, a man of faith together with his wife and 4 other children, has always thanked the participation in the family’s sorrow in a moving way but has strongly reiterated that in the values ​​of faith the very golden loss of a son will be compensated by a noble and very high project of the divine. We embrace affectionately Admiral Pignataro and his family and we are confident (secularly and religiously) that Davide will have reached the desired port
