Ecomuseum can be described as a territorial or community museum. Hugues De Varine explains: It is an agreement in which a community agrees to take care of a territory.

Palermo’s sea and Palermo still have a way to reach an agreement through video, audio, and photographic installations. This story is told through many stories, biographical stories and bits of city history. Palermo families participated with videos and photos. They told, in front the recorders or videocamera, a story, thought or personal struggle related to the sea of Palermo.
