Realised in collaboration with the Museo del Mare e delle Migrazioni (Museum of the Sea and Migrations) of Genoa, it is an ultra-technological exhibition that, through touch screens and 3D simulations, offers an overview of the history of the island of San Pietro, from its geological origins to the settlement of 1738.

Developed on the three floors of the recently restored 18th-century Torre San Vittorio, it was inaugurated in 2016. Each level recounts a different phase of Carloforte: the ground floor the geological events that led to the formation of the island; the second floor the prehistoric and historical events, from the Nuragic era to the Roman era; the third floor the succession of historical events closer to us, up to the arrival of the Tabarchini in 1738. The tour, which lasts about 45 minutes, ends on the top floor of the Tower, with a stunning 360° panoramic viewpoint.
