He was a deputy in the Italian parliament and mayor and political boss of Naples. At Italy's entrance into World War II (June 20, 1940) Lauro had 57 boats with over 300,000 tons. The company entered the cruise business in the 1960s. In 1987, Lauro Lines or Flotta Lauro was purchased by Mediterranean Shipping Company and renamed StarLauro Cruises.
