Waterproof e L'Oceano di Tarabaralla

L’8 Giugno 2019 Altavia partecipa alla Giornata Mondiale degli Oceani con l’inaugurazione della mostra di Marillina Fortuna «Waterproof» e la presentazione del libro autobiografico di Salvatore Mantaci «L’Oceano di Tarabaralla».

Marillina Fortuna installerà un’opera site specific nella Sala Navigli della sede di Altavia. Una bellissima interpretazione di ciò che il mare restituisce attraverso l’utilizzo di quei materiali plastici, gommosi, lignei che possiamo ritrovare, purtroppo, su moltissime nostre spiagge e scogli. Più profondamente anche un viaggio nella culla del Mediterraneo, protagonista in questi anni di faticose migrazioni e tragedie umane.

Salvatore Mantaci racconterà il suo viaggio, la navigazione transoceanica, in solitaria, a bordo della sua barca Tarabaralla, nome che dà appunto il titolo al suo libro. Un diario di bordo molto emozionante che affronta il viaggio con una riflessione intima attraverso il respiro del mare

WHAT BETTER PLACE FOR WORLD OCEANS DAY THAN MONTEREY BAY?

On June 8th of each year, a global conservation organization known as The Ocean Project promotes the majesty of our oceans with World Ocean Day. Since 2002, this day has been a celebration of the five oceans that connect us — and it emphasizes our responsibility to protect the ocean and the many organisms that call the ocean home.

The Ocean Project is quick to note that in reality there is one global ocean that connects us all, so World Oceans Day is also a day of coming together and promoting the human community. Monterey County celebrates this unifying mission with plenty of local events that promote the sustainability of the ocean.

WOD at the Extreme Northern Corner of the Mediterranean Sea

May 30 2019 @ 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Our event is aimed at learning the principles of Ocean Literacy by means of a fieldwork activity on the small beach of a Natura 2000 protected area (coastal wetland) at the extreme Northern corner of the Mediterranean Sea.

A group of 7th grade students will make observations on natural and man-made features, discovering landscape evolution in the last century in an area affected by remediation and then returning to wilderness.

Students will analyze water from a barrier-spring river and from the sea, drawing conclusions about the hydrology of the area and pollution from agriculture and human settlements.

At the end of the activity students will be questioned about "the ocean's influence on them and their influence on the ocean" eliciting their proposals for a sustainable use of land and sea.
