In 1997 a bill was introduced in the Italian Chamber of Deputies to create a Park that could protect Cerrano area. The bill was immediately approved by the Parliament , and “Torre del Cerrano” joined the list of Marine Reserve Areas in order to establish a Marine Protected Area by art. 4, law No 344 of the following October.

In January 2009, during the State-Local Authorities Unified Meeting, the Decree of Establishment  was approved and, before it was published on the Italian Official Journal, the Management Association had already formed between the Municipalities of Silvi and Pineto, the Province of Teramo and the Region of Abruzzo.

The management of the area was entrusted to the Association by art. 7 of the same Decree which was issued by the Department of Environment  and Protection of Natural Territories on 2 Oct. 2009 and published on the Official Journal of the Italian Republic, No 80, general series, on 7 April 2010.
Therefore the Municipalities of Silvi and Pineto, the Province of Teramo and the Region of Abruzzo are all members of the Management Association. The Presidents and the mayors of the above-mentioned institutions form the Assembly of the Association. President of the Assembly is the mayor of Pineto, Luciano Monticelli.
