As a 20-year-old he participates with his father in the RAI program "Sea to be saved", created to sensitize Italians at the end of the 70s to respect for the sea. In this transmission, the two, diving into the Tuscan waters, find shipwrecks from the Spanish era, amphorae and various artifacts, showing underwater films never seen on television.
