1992 Yacht / Country:	IL MORO DI VENEZIA V / Italy	 Sail Number:	        ITA-25 	 Syndicate :             Il Moro di Venezia Syndicate	 Yacht Club:             Compania Della Vela Yacht Club,                                                                      Venice	 CEO	                        Raul Gardini	 Designer :	       German Freres	 Boat Builder :        Tencara at Porto Marghera	 Skipper:	         Paul Pierre Cayard From the challengers the Italian Raul Gardini was  Koch’s  equivalent counterpart.  Gardini financed even 5 yachts,  all called “ Il Moro di Venecia I – V”. “ (ITA-1, -7, -15, - 16 and –25 )  ITA-25 won the LVC against NZL- 20 but missed the America’s Cup. Raul Gardini counted as head of the agricultural  FERUZZI Group with the flagship of the chemical  giant  MONTEDISON to Italy's richest entrepreneurs.  But its many acquisitions, including MONTEDISON,  brought the company into serious financial problems  with dubious political implications. As yet Gardini should be arrested on charges of  corruption and bribery he committed suicide in  July 1993.   Some sources assume on basis of some evidence  even a homicide.
