OpenROV in Italia

Our project "OpenROV in Italy" aims to create a startup that can sustain itself using underwater robotics and new technologies to promote activities related to edutaintment, scientific research (in the aquatic environment), underwater explorations, social inclusion and finally sail training. We have already identified a floating head quarter that we would like to purchase: the schooner "Bella Laura" a feature historic vessel dating back to 1940. The aim is use this as a perfect boat floating base to support the kind of activities that we would like to promote. We currently own a OpenROV 2.8 homebuilt and we are tightening excellent relations with the American OpenROV community with the aim of spreading the use of this type of "underwater drones" in Italy not only for recreation use but also for use it in emergency situations and hazardous work for divers.
Our dream would be to bring to light an old wreck of galleon sunk in 1700 a few meters from the sandy coast of Pesaro and found the first ARCHEOLOGICAL underwater Adriatic Park.
