Launching in Italy?

I have tried a search here and on google with no luck....
So does anyone have any information on launching in Liguria in Italy,
I have found some info on France, which maybe of some interest, here...

Google Maps Frence slipways

and I was wondering if the little slips in the smaller towns were free to use.
On Boat launch they have a couple in the bigger towns/cities but its not an area very well covered.

Sounds fun, an awesome coastline. I was based near la spezia in the late 90's and not too much has changed since. I don't recall many slipways, but there are small boat yards with cranes which would save your bearings. Where were you thinking of heading and I can look in the Italian waters pilot book for you? The very long tow down has always put the rest of the family off, and I had wondered about the practicality of launching and storing etc.

I have a tiny hut outside Murazzano ,about 45 mins north of Savona and am just putting together a 3.6mt SIB as I spend far too much time down there!
We always drive and as I have virtually finished the Ciabot (vineyard hut) I can substitute all the tools and stuff for the SIB.
The 2 main places I should like to launch are Noli and somewhere nearCamogli, Noli has an open slip on the beach and I just wondered if one could just 'pump and go' from there.
This is the beach I would like to get too from Camogli , only accessed by foot or boat...I can obviously ask when I next go down but am fanatically researching now.
I haven't been to La Spezia yet but we are gradually travelling further

In the book it only shows a slipway near you at Finale Ligure, so looks like you'll be carrying the sib in.
