Capo Teulada firing range was established by NATO in 1956 in south west Sardinia and it is now in size, the second largest Italian range. The +7,000 acres of territory are used for military training activities of both the Italian Armed Forces and NATO (in the air-sea-ground scenarios). The perimeter of the range is about 50 km, including the coastline within the beaches of Porto Scudo, Port Zafferano and Spiaggia degli Americani, that can be accessed, from the sea, for two months each year. In the summer season, daily boat trips are offered by local companies that ferry tourists in the most wonderful spots around the range that, therefore, can be seen from another point of view, as showed by the following pictures taken by Giovanni Maduli in August 2010.
