Synopsis: The video “Love of the sea … Love for life” means the Adriatic-Ionian sea as a connection among the cultures that live on its coasts and not the geographical barrier that divides them. Two nations of different languages and traditions are united by their love of the sea and for life, symbolized by the flight of a seagull. Only the clothes of the Croatian rangers and the Italian volunteers are different: an appeal to the Italian institutions to invest more in protecting the marine environment.
