APREH - Interdisciplinary Aquaria for the PRomotion of Environment and History

Funding: European Territorial Cooperation Programme Greece-Italy 2007-2013

 

The objective of the APREH was the setting up of two aquaria on both sides of the Ionian Sea, the trans-boundary zone between Greece and Italy, for highlighting the riches of the natural and cultural marine resources and promoting the blue growth and eco-tourism concepts.

The specific project aimed at the creation of exibition centers for the promotion of the marine environment and the submarine cultural heritage.

The central idea of the project was to prepare a show of archaeological remains with a reproduction of the relicts on the sea bottom covered and modified by the sea and its living organisms.

The above objective was achieved through the realization of:

• A detailed collection of information on bottom habitats and historical relicts in the participating areas

• Joint short scuba surveys to document actual situations, with the development of a GIS MAP

• Scenes (DIORAMA) with the reproduction of an ancient ship-relict with all its cargo in position.

• Aquarium

• A Documentation Point where people can study, discuss and/or communicate
