Village of retired deep sea divers

Le Grazie, tiny seafaring village in Liguria is known for the Varignano, base of Italian Navy that has been training its deep sea divers for more than 50 years. Generations of retired divers live there, meeting every 2 years for the official gathering, where they recall the good old times.
Some of the marines are 90 or older, and at every reunion they remember and talk about those who couldn’t be present, either for health issues or because they passed away.
