#19 Sant’Antioco – Departure

About to leave to Carloforte, just in front of this place, a few miles away.

In Sant’Antioco there are two totally different municipalities: Sant’Antioco and Calasetta. In Sant’Antioco we met some truly special people, Barbara and Simona from Cooperativa Sociale Le Api, which has nothing to do with honey! These girls and their colleagues work on the education of disabled people, with a really human approach. Furthermore, the province of Sulcis Iglesiente, to which Sant’Antioco belongs, is the poorest province in Italy and one with a way higher percentage of genetical diseases than the world average, clearly – I say that – because of the presence of mines and heavy factories since decades now. Yet these guys are fighting and made it to create such an activity that works nicely for both the “patients” and the employees, who are paid for their job and happy.
As a side project, the Associazione Le Rondini “NEW” just equipped the first beach in Sardinia where people with serious motion diseases can even “swim” in the sea!

In Calasetta, on the other hand, I will meet on Saturday the guys from the Fondazione MACC, an incredible contemporary arts museum for such a small place as Calasetta. An artist from Chile and one from Sardinia are secretly preparing a live performance in between geology, weaving, and music…

The project is conceived and realized by me, Lucio Bellomo, born in 1983 in Palermo, Sicily. Which is also Italy ;-) I am (not proud of being) an engineer in electronics. After the PhD I worked as a physical oceanographer in France, doing research on the physical phenomena that rule the oceans. I took part in several long international oceanographic cruises onboard research vessels. Eager for an even tighter contact with the sea, I left the University and today I work as a diving instructor, both SCUBA and freediving, in small Mediterranean islands and tropical seas. In my spare time I fancy sailing: I began in the Mediterranean Sea and am continuing in the Atlantic Ocean.
