COUSTEAU SAID IT -  Reading the below sentence, we remind the diving concept that the American Padi tried to export in Europe in the 80s:

Diving is the ideal family sport. It is no longer a sport to be enjoyed only by professionals and adventurous “supermen”: it is a thrilling recreational for the average individual.

It is not like that. This sentence expressed the diving concept that French Jacques Yves Cousteau exported to America, twenty years before; in fact, it was published in U.S. Divers catalogue of 1958. We Europeans, we Italians, how far we were from America in those years!!
