The activities towards the realization of a km(3) Cherenkov neutrino detector carried out by the NEMO Collaboration are described. Long-term exploration of a 3500m deep-sea site close to the Sicilian coast has shown that it is optimal for the installation of the detector. The realization of a Phase-1 project, which is under way, will validate the proposed technologies for the realization of the km3 detector on a Test Site at 2000 in depth. The realization of a new infrastructure on the candidate site (Phase-2 project) will provide the possibility to test detector components at 3500m depth. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
