Frederique Constant and the Riva Historical Society

Courtesy of Frederique Constant
Today saw the announcement of two new models from Frederique Constant.

Frederique Constant launched a partnership with the Riva Historical Society -

Riva Historical Society

In the society's own words:

The Riva Historical Society was created at the end of 1998. This non profit organisation was founded by Architect Piero Maria Gibellini (biographer of Carlo Riva and creator in 1996 of the Riva Historical Registry) along with Ingegnere Carlo Riva and a group of friends, admirers of the legendary figure of the Ingegnere.

The main objectives of the association are:
  • the conservation of the boats designed or built by Carlo Riva or, more in general, those that are part of his world and the conservation of the technical and cultural wealth that they represent;
  • the promotion and collection of research and studies;
  • the encouragement and the assistance for the conservation and restoration, in the full respect of the original criteria;
  • the registration of the boats of members in the RHS Registry
because they constitute an asset to Italian nautical history and hold an important position in international nautical culture.
For this purpose, the RHS intends:
  • to help the owners to maintain and restore their Riva runabouts in the best possible way and assist them in their needs;
  • to keep in touch with members through a periodical magazine, ''vivariva'' in English and Italian - with news, suggestions, information and the members’ mail - and through the internet and the media;
  • to help build and develop the RHS Chapters, as Clubs, Societies and Delegations, in the countries where there is a significant number of Riva owners;
  • to help build the friendship and interchange among the owners, all over the world, through the organisation of or participation at social meetings or international events;
  • to spread the knowledge of its activities through the media, thus getting the necessary visibility to reach the highest possible number of new members.
