Protect our Ocean. Evening of screenings, stories and drinks.

Event organized by Patagonia in collaboration with Ocean Space.

Admission fee
Free of charge

Limited seats available, reservations are required at the following link.

On Wednesday, June 28, Ocean Space is hosting an evening dedicated to the Ocean and its protection, organized by Patagonia.

Our future on the planet is closely linked to that of the oceans. The seas are precious allies in the fight against climate change, and they are home to diverse, thriving lifeforms.

Trawling, however, seriously jeopardizes this delicate balance and threatens to destroy many marine ecosystems.

Join us for an evening dedicated to the people who fight for the conservation and protection of the seas, and who passionately show us how we can work together with the ocean, not against it.


  • 6pm | Visit to the exhibition "Thus waves come in pairs"
  • 6:30pm | Expert talks and film screening
  • 8:30pm | Aperitif in the cloister offered by Select Aperitivo
