Abstract: A passive seismic experiment to monitor the Messina Strait and the whole Calabrian arc began in October 2007 and it is still in progress. Overall about 16 temporary seismic stations were installed on land around the the Strait of Messina and 5 ocean bottom seismometers (OBS) to better monitor the area largely covered by the sea. The network incorporates and upgrades existing seismic stations (more than 20) of the permanent networks located in area. All the data gathered in the Messina 1908-2008 project together with all metadata will be archived in the same SEED data bank and will be accessible by the whole scientific community trough an ArcLink server.'s assemblage of a database and integration of innovative technologies could transform our understanding of the crust and mantle structure of the active tectonics and seismic hazards of the Strait of Messina.
