Synopsis: A 13-year-old boy finds himself in the beautiful seaside town of Portorosso on the Italian Riviera for the summer. There, he meets Alberto Scorfano, a fellow teenage boy, and together, they spend their days eating pasta, downing gelato, riding scooters, and going on endless adventures. Their fun, however, is constantly threatened by their fear of the townspeople finding out about their little secret: that they came from the depths of the sea.

We are continuing with various online programs - including a virtual Escape Rooms for everyone to enjoy! Can you solve the puzzles?
