The decision to continue our adoption with the study of the Tonnara of Solanto was motivated by the desire to complete the reconstruction of the history of the ancient site with the research on marine systems, ie the equipment placed at sea, at a certain distance from the coast, according to a millenary tradition culminated in the ritual of mattanza.
The research allowed the students to retrace the preparatory phases, to set up the complex system of nets necessary for the capture of tuna during their passage in late spring, and then to favor the ancient anchors "at sea", where they had been placed for protection of the nets.
