Enjoy a one-to-one lesson with world-record-holding free diver Umberto Pelizzari at Y-40 in Italy.

"Do you know what you have to do to live in the world of mermaids? You have to go down to the bottom of the sea, very far away, so far that the blue no longer exists, where the sky is nothing but a memory."

Free diving is more than a sport, it's a lifestyle. A way to get to know yourself, a way to put your body to the test.

This experience gives you the chance to meet the world-record-holding free diving expert Umberto Pelizzari and enjoy an exclusive one to one lesson with him in the 34°C thermal water of Y-40, the deepest pool of the world.

The one-of-a-kind lesson is open to freedivers of all levels, both for those just entering the world of freediving as well as experienced underwater divers who want to perfect their technique and understand the modern approach.

Umberto Pelizzari is an Italian freediver, television presenter and academic. He has set world records in all apnea disciplines.

The Y-40 is the deepest pool in the world and is located in Montegrotto Terme, Italy. It's name refers to the figure of the freediver in a vertical position and the maximum depth of the pool, 42 m to be precise.

This experience is valid for one person and can be redeemed in 2020.

Certificate of medical fitness with ECG after stress test is required.

Transportation to / from Montegrotto Terme, Italy will be at the expense of the auction winner.

The Cause

Soleterre è una Fondazione Onlus che lavora per il riconoscimento e l’applicazione del Diritto alla Salute nel suo significato più ampio. Da oltre 17 anni Soleterre lavora per innalzare i tassi di sopravvivenza e migliorare la qualità della vita dei bambini e degli adolescenti malati di tumore in ospedale in Italia e nel mondo, con bisogni molto diversi in ogni contesto di intervento.

Quest'anno Soleterre ha organizzato l'Asta dei Sogni in occasione della Dreaming Night For Children. I fondi raccolti verranno destinati al programma Grande contro il cancro di Soleterre in Italia, nello specifico nei reparti di onco-ematologia pediatrica di Pavia e Taranto, che vuole sostenere le famiglie con bambini malati di cancro costrette a lasciare la propria città e il lavoro per seguire il figlio nelle cure: ciò significa aiutarle con un contributo mensile per coprire le spese di viaggio, l’alloggio, i beni di prima necessità e fornire loro tutta l’assistenza psicologica di cui hanno bisogno sia in ospedale sia a domicilio una volta terminate le cure.
