During the summer 2008, a mysterious submarine was discovered off the coast of Italy 120 meters deep. For Lorenzo del Veneziano, an underwater marine archeologist, it is an amazing sight. The submarine is intact ! It stands almost vertically at the bottom of the sea, its hull stuck in the sediment. What is the story of that ship, why is she here? By uncovering the mystery of its origins, we will retrace the incredible story of the U-455, a German warship that fought every marine battle against the Allies, from the Baltic Sea to the Atlantic and finally the Mediterranean where it now rests. An extraordinary underwater adventure and an ambitious historical investigation.
