A new way of displaying and understanding underwater archeology.

Within a space that is submerged below sea level, the exhibition is divided into two main blocks. In the first, the visitor can learn about the methodology of underwater archeology through interactive resources and in the second block the visitor enjoys an itinerary of the history of navigation by way of scenography and archeological pieces displayed in spectacular glass cases that mark the chronological rhythm of the exhibition.
