Storyline

Dumping at sea was considered worldwide the best available solution for the disposal of useless ammunition and obsolete ordnance, at least until the seventies. In the Mediterranean Southern Adriatic Sea, in particular, after WW II, war surplus and ordnance, brought up from navy wrecks sunk in Apulian ports and harbors, resulting from clean-up activities and from stores and productions units, were regularly dumped at sea. Pianosa Island, Tremiti archipelago, was a jettisoning areas for allied bombers and now a suitable site to study the environmental consequences for marine life of poisoning compounds such as trinitrotoluene (TNT), a major pollutant that submerged bombshells release because of corrosion phenomena.
