The location is Vado Ligure, scrapyard Riccardi. The tug is almost for sure the Genua, the penultimate ship to be scrapped there. I have doubts about the date, I think the tug was scrapped before the end of 1989, the scrapyard ceased the activity and probably this happened at the end of the year 1989.

I believe it is Genua. It was owned by Rimorchiatori Riuniti and looked very similar with that hign bow and square pilothouse. See

The funnel marking is that of Rimorchiatori Riuniti, if that helps..

Might be GENUA of 1962 (IMO 5001827), which was sold for scrap 12/1989.

Or perhaps TURCHIA of 1959 (IMO 5370993) which seems to have disappeared around that time.
