In another delicate design touch, the base comprises three overlaid steel sections that evoke the famous Riva prow and open out in a propeller-like pattern.

RIVA CORSA - the book
RIVA CORSA. The Origin of the Myth tells the story of the world of powerboat racing in which Serafino Riva, the grandson of the company founder and father of the engineer Carlo Riva, claimed a stunning series of wins, titles and records from the 1930s onwards. That was how Cantiere F.lli Riva earned its renown as the “best builder of outboard racing boats”. This outstanding record of sporting prowess, which contributed to the development of Carlo Riva's genius, is superbly illustrated by 200 black and white and colour images, many of them hitherto unseen, printed on 167 magnificent pages presented in an elegant binding.
RIVA, LO STILE ITALIANO - the book
The book features the photos of 33 Riva yachts taken by some of the most famous names in international photography, including Benjamin Mendlowitz, Carlo Borlenghi, Franco Pace, Guido Cantini and Anthony Holder. Riva, lo stile italiano is a collection of stunning images of the masterpieces produced by the legendary boatyard and which have made the history of the brand, beginning with the boats crafted by Serafino Riva. The book encapsulates the elegance and exclusiveness of the Riva brand, which has brought international renown to Italian craftsmanship and know-how and has led to the historic achievement of creating the undisputed icon of yachting style.

The lamp’s many exclusive and stylish details include a touch-sensitive switch and the stem in black Mambo. The steel base has three overlapping sections, calling to mind the famous prow of the Aquarama and Aquariva speedboats, and when opened out the pattern is reminiscent of a boat propeller. The lamp is designed by Mauro Micheli, co-founder with Sergio Beretta of Officina Italiana Design and the creative mind behind all Riva yachts.
