Our sea, sea of home, seems so close, so familiar, but for us at TRITON it has a seductive flavor of adventure.
Years of exploration of the seabed, years of navigation, have given us extraordinary shows, encounters with magnificent and surprising creatures. Often, however, we have observed behavior never seen before, or unknown creatures.
Especially in the last 25 years, when underwater exploration at depths of more than fifty meters up to over one hundred and fifty, has become systematic and constant, opening up new scenarios on the functioning and life of the Mare Nostrum. Observations, meetings, of which simple enthusiasts have reported to expert scientists. Realizing in this way how little even science is known about our sea and how much there is still to be discovered.
This is one of the aims, of the most exciting objectives of TRITON: to broaden the knowledge of the sea, to tell the most curious observations of scholars and make them understandable to everyone. And put yourself at their service, to try to lift some of the veils of clear and blue water that have managed to hide small mysteries for centuries. Thus, in the TRITON team, there are modern communicators, who resort to new technologies, to singular and innovative ideas to try to reveal the most seductive mysteries. Always keeping an eye on the ecosystem, other scientific disciplines, other discoveries: in the awareness that a stretch of seabed is part of the sea, which is part of the planet earth.
Here then is that the experts of TRITON are able to put on a mask and fins, to launch themselves to great depths to have a vision as complete as possible of this wonderful sea. Which is still splendid and vital. What on the pages of this site, we want to tell.
