Roberto Fedele first landed, on this small rock hanging between sky and sea, in 1995 for his work as an underwater videographer for a national television channel.
Quickly, he was bewitched by the singular atmosphere that reigns on the island; colours, crystal clear waters, abundant underwater life… ! All the emotions experienced during his first visit forced him to follow his instincts… come back in 1999 to open his diving center “La Perla Nera Diving”.

During the past 20 years in Ustica, he has acquired an in-depth expertise of all diving sites. Thanks to his work, his passion, his personality, he quickly became a reference for those who wished to discover the secrets of Ustica’s seabed.

When you meet Roberto .. you don’t remain a client for long, you quickly become friends.
His motto: “You arrive as a customer, but will leave as a friend !”
