About

Hallo everybody!

We will create a new artistic performance underwater with a sincrony between coloured light and music and a live streaming involving the Elviscott wreck which lies between 10 and 20 meters deep in front of Pomonte - Elba Island , Italy. For this artistic performance we need to collect € 20.000.

Many divers come to respect the sea and drowned in this heritage site , wich is slowly crumbling because of tides and waves. We would like Honoré , share it with other ( non-divers too) and make it eternal ... so ...

  • We will illuminate the wreck from within using new technologies: music and colored lights created by our partners iWave Ocean.  
  • The performance will be recorded to create publications and reports to make to live forever Elviscott.
  • The performance will be broadcast on the screens on the beach and lookout during the annual festival of Pomonte.
  • We will attempt the Guinness World Record as most divers in an underwater ballet class.
  • We started a competition for the "University of Brera" students. If the student responds to the competition, the winners will see their project to Elviscott made by us, recorded and broadcast during the fire. 

The Elviscott wreck, turistical point of interest since many years, it’s part of the Elba Island’s story and it’s located on the west coast near Pomonte village. Elviscot was a small merchant ship built in 1960, 62,25 meters long for 499 tons. Created by Scheepswerven Gebr Van Diepen Waterhuizen, holland. Lavinia Antonio Scotto, Napoli - IT, became his owner and started using it for wood commerce. On 10th January 1972, near the Ogliera rock in front of Pomonte, l’Elviscot drown: on his route to Marseille due to a storm it hit the rocks, luckily without consequence for the crew. 

 Today the whole stern, the bridge and part of the flank are resting on a sandy bed just at 12 meter depht. All the metallic structures looking east to the horizon are covered with sealife and fishes. 

On 4th September 2015 “Luci da Profondo” team, in cooperation with Esest (European society for Enviromental Science and Technologies), produced and streamed in occasion of “Il Calello” fairy, un video - photo reportage to let the Elviscott re-emerge from the ocean, bringing it on the beautiful Elban shores. The shooting started on the previous evening, 3rd September. Elviscott came back to life thanks to an internal light set up studied by iWave Design, bringing light in the depths. Due to the great success and the impressive press feedback “Luci dal Profondo” decided to raise the bet improving every aspect of the show.  

Risks and challenges

The main difficulty is to create the right tecnologies to enlight the wreck and to realize the performance with the lesser stress possible for the local fauna. The patrocinium of the natural area of tuscany archipelago, two graduates in Enviromental sciences, and a dedicated light engineer are our main levers.
To be able to overcome the world record more than 75 divers have to be involved, wich is not a huge number, but to support all of them we are creating contacts with the local hotels associations, the autorities and the island diving association.

against bad weather we can't do much but...the season is usually good and well... we'll get wet anyway!
