Department Sea and Underwater Archaeology 

From the activities sponsored by the Restoring Ancient Stabiae Foundation, founded in 2005, was created the Department of Underwater Archaeology. With its seat in the beautiful and various frameof the Vesuvian Institute, the Department follows up and promotes initiatives to spread the knowledge of the sea world, with particular attention to the Campania's archaeology. The evidences related to ancient Rome have interpreted the Campania region as the best expression of its military power, thanks to the fleet of the Tyrrhenian see "Classis Misenensis", with its seat in Miseno, and of its economic power, thanks to the commercial port "Sinus Baianus". It becomes very important also the strong social contribution through the creation of many coastal villas, perhaps the most numerous complex ever built. Thanks to the harmony between the charm of the ancient and the technological evolution, the research of submerged heritage, promoted by the Department, represent an important opportunity for scientists and researchers, thanks to its usability as well as to new discoveries and increased protection of the conservation's issues.
