Touroperator is a contemporary art exhibition made with the hulls recovered in the boat cemetery, Lampedusa island in Italy, by the artist Massimo Sansavini.

In September 2015, the Court of Agrigento authorizes for the first time an artist to take the migrant hulls, kept at the former American base LORAN in Lampedusa.

"Being the only person authorized to take the hulls in the Lampedusa boat cemetery gives me the chance to be able to accomplish works with a strong symbolic value."

The exhibition contributed with critics' texts, Valeria Arnaldi, Daniela Brignone, Pietro Bartolo, Davide Rondoni.

Touroperator has received the patronage of Amnesty International.
