After 13 years of bureaucracy, a finding of the safe on the wreck “Re d’Italia” can be confirmed. The wreck lies at a depth of 115 meters north of the Island of Vis. The safe could possibly hold millions in gold.

A diver from Komiža, Vis, Mr. Lorenzo Marović (claims he) discovered the wreck in 2005. while searching for corals.

Italian ironclad, Re d’Italia sunk in the “Battle Of Lisa” in 1866.

Until the other facts and details are confirmed, we can only once more admire the amazing Croatian aquatorium and its many historically important findings.

The wreck finding is a true gold mine in my opinion, the safe is just an accessory.
