Five of these (Porto Garibaldi 1, Rimini, Cattolica, Senigallia and Porto novo 2 (Fig. 2» were planned by IRPEM on the basis of previous experience at Porto Recanati and Portonovo 1. All five reefs were placed at the centre of a protected area (200 ha) defined by anchored corner buoys. 1 ha) each consisting of eight pyramids (Fig. 5; Table 1). The pyramids are formed by five IRPEM blocks and were deployed on gravel mattresses in a square, about 15 m apart. The top blocks of the pyramids are connected to each other by steel wires (allowing suspended shellfish culture) and surrounded by four concrete cylinders leaning on the base blocks, thus increasing the shelter available for marine organisms.

Polovina and Sakai (1989) showed that artificial reefs in one region of Japan increased the production of octopus by providing suitable habitat. Hundreds of egg bunches belonging to the squid Loligo vulgaris were recorded from the 18 m deep blocks in June 1993 and April 1994.

Later pyramids made of five blocks (four base and one on top) were constructed and the top block was fitted with an iron support for attachment of shellfish culture cables (Fig. 1; Bombace, 1981, 1982, 1987). 5 km offshore, on a muddy seabed, 13-14 m deep (Fig. 2). The reef was constructed for IRPEM with the aims of preventing trawling, repopulating the area with marine life and developing new, sessile biomass, especially mussels and oysters. It has a central 'oasis' (3 ha) formed by 12 pyramids (Fig.
