Thanks for giving this note. Can't we just import/redraw this map, as
it is part of a law? Or isn't it? On the page it looks like it was (I
presume that laws in Italy are under public domain?).

I also remember that someone was already talking even in personal with
this Italian marine defense institution and they were willing to
donate data if I recall right?

Cheers,
Martin
