Umbria: From Wreck to Reef

Show Summary

Umbria: From Wreck to Reef is a web documentary that explores the gradual transition of an Italian battleship as it progresses from a wreck into a living reef. The Umbria went down on June 10, 1940, with all-hands onboard off the city of Port Sudan. Encased within the battleship were 10,000 tons of ammunition, 30,000 bombs and aerial mines, military cars, motorbikes and 50,000 silver coins. Sixty years later, host Erich Proll dives the wreck that has now become a living reef filled with a surprising variety of sea creatures.
