Marzamemi Underwater Museum. Sicily (Italy)

In Sicily, the sea is a key element of the cultural heritage and we believe that the preservation of the sea cannot be based only on the activity of the so called experts but also on the knowledge of general public. The dissemination and enhancement of the underwater cultural heritage was one of the more heartfelt activities for the Councilor for cultural Heritage of Sicily, Sebastiano Tusa. He promoted the project “Underwater cultural itineraries in Sicily” which designed and implemented the routes for archeological underwater parks. Sebastiano strongly wanted the Consortium to focus on the archeological site of Marzamemi. We want to remember him all along the project.

In Memorian of Sebastiano Tusa, Councilor for Cultural Heritage of Sicily. Sebastiano passed away in the Ethiopian Airline plane crash on March 10, 2019
