The interdisciplinary ‘Aquaria for the Promotion of Environment and History’ (A.Pr.E.H.) is an in progress project financed within the framework of the European Territorial Cooperation Programme (E.T.C.P.) “Greece-Italy” 2007-2013. The project - whose Italian partners are the University of Salento (Leader), the Province of Lecce, the Municipality of Nardò, while the Greek partners are the University of Patras and the Municipality of Kefalonia – will be concluded within February 2014 and aims to study and to promote the historical and natural submarine heritages which characterize two Ionian areas of the Mediterranean: Salento peninsula (SE-Italy) and Kefalonia Island (W-Greece). To accomplish the project, two small public Aquaria have been designed, respectively at the localities of Santa Maria al Bagno (Nardò) and Argostoli (Kefalonia). The mission of both Aquaria will be the promotion, education, and information point not only for the knowledge of the local marine fauna and flora, but also for the many ancient wrecks which stay in these seas by 3,500 years at least. In each Aquarium several natural submerged landscapes and historical findings will be exhibited representing the other partner country, to provide an integrated transboundary touristic promotion.

Abstract

The interdisciplinary ‘Aquaria for the Promotion of Environment and History’ (A.Pr.E.H.) is an in progress project financed within the framework of the European Territorial Cooperation Programme (E.T.C.P.) “Greece-Italy” 2007-2013. The project - whose Italian partners are the University of Salento (Leader), the Province of Lecce, the Municipality of Nardò, while the Greek partners are the University of Patras and the Municipality of Kefalonia – will be concluded within February 2014 and aims to study and to promote the historical and natural submarine heritages which characterize two Ionian areas of the Mediterranean: Salento peninsula (SE-Italy) and Kefalonia Island (W-Greece). To accomplish the project, two small public Aquaria have been designed, respectively at the localities of Santa Maria al Bagno (Nardò) and Argostoli (Kefalonia). The mission of both Aquaria will be the promotion, education, and information point not only for the knowledge of the local marine fauna and flora, but also for the many ancient wrecks which stay in these seas by 3,500 years at least. In each Aquarium several natural submerged landscapes and historical findings will be exhibited representing the other partner country, to provide an integrated transboundary touristic promotion.
