(AGI) Rome, July 21 - A shipwreck from the Napoleonic Wars discovered off Liguria's coast earlier this year is being studied by Italian navy divers. The ship was sunk during a famous battle between France and England in March 1795, in which Horatio Nelson won his first victory as captain of the 64-gun ship HMS Agamemnon. The wreck, about 1.5 miles from the beaches at Finale Ligure, will be inspected by the crew of the Anteo, an Italian navy unit led by the Teseo Tesei Diver and Raider Command Group (COMSUBIN). In June, the navy force launched a campaign from the port of Messina, carrying out underwater operations for a number of ministries and public bodies. The shipwreck in the waters of Finale Ligure will be investigated for the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism. An inspection of the area by COMSUBIN divers, also using the Anteo's tethered SRV-300 mini submarine, will help collect information to assess further operations for Liguria's Superintendence for Fine Arts and Landscape. The archaeological site is protected by a decree from Savona's Port Authority. Dives authorised by Liguria's Superintendence are the only underwater activities allowed in the area. The Italian navy and MIBACT aim to identify and document shipwrecks in deep waters to gain archaeological knowledge on trade and vessels in ancient, medieval and modern times, and also to test and develop innovative equipment for underwater investigations.
