"WHY THE ANTARCTIC"
At the edge of our planet, a continent still largely unknown has been discovered early last century.
Famous and brave explorers from around the world have opened the way to Antarctica.
Italy endorsed the Antrctic Treaty in 1981, twenty years after its formulation.
The Treaty states that the Antarctic continent must be considered as a territory for scientific research, where any speculative and military activity, and territorial claim, are banned.
Antarctica will remain for a long time a unique natural laboratory to be protected and maintained for the future generations. This continent may provide important information to the history of our planet, and answers to questions such as the evolution of life and the future af mankind.
