The Zucchelli Station is a permanent Antarctic Station on the Terra Nova Bay located at a small altitude of 15 meters and with an area of approximately 7,200 square meters. In 2010, the Station was enlarged and in "warm" months is linked to the Italian Concordia Station (operated together with French researchers).
This facility was created in 1985 and hosts a variety of scientific projects. The Programma Nazionale di Ricerche in Antartide (National Antarctic Research Program (PNRA)) works closely with the US Antarctic Program and Antarctica New Zealand.
