 A mermaid and synchronised free-divers opened the world's deepest swimming pool

The Y-40  Deep Joy pool in Italy was opened with an underwater show of free-and scuba divers. Highlights were 'mermaid' Ilaria Molinari and freedive champion Umberto Pelizzar who measured and certified the pool's depth of 40m. 


The Bishop of Macerata, a scuba diver himself, placed and blessed a statue of the Virgin Mary, protector of water, at a depth of 10m.
