The EEE (Extreme Energy Events) Project, conceived by its leader Antonino Zichichi, is an experiment to study very high-energetic air showers (EAS) through the detection of the shower’s muon component using a network of tracking detectors, installed in Italian high schools. The single tracking telescope is composed of three large area ( about 2m^2) Multi-gap Resistive Plate Chambers (MRPCs). The data collected by the telescopes will be used for studies of air showers and also for the search of time correlations between sites which are far apart. The ﬁrst telescope, recently installed in the Liceo B. Touschek in Grottaferrata (Rome), is successfully running, and other telescopes are going to be installed in a short time in other towns, opening up the way for the ﬁrst search of long-distance coincidences over a total area of 10^6 km^2.
