The Italian site for KM3NeT, located in the Ionian Sea about 100 km offshore Capo Passero, South East of Sicily, is dedicated to host (at least) two building blocks of the ARCA (Astronomy Research with Cosmics in the Abysses), comprising 230 Detection Units aiming at measurement of high-energy neutrino fluxes and discovery of their sources. The existing infrastructure is under upgrade within the framework of the IDMAR project jointly funded by Regione Siciliana and INFN. IDMAR at Capo Passero will be run in connection with the other abyssal infrastructure built by INFN 25 km offshore the town of Catania at 2100 m depth, hosting the Western Ionian Sea node of EMSO-ERIC.
