BHETSA is a project funded by the PRIN2020 call. Goal of the project is to evolve the successful Virgo Superattenuator concept, to enable detection down to a few Hz and giving access to high-mass black holes and high redshift ones from the early Universe, or allowing an early warning to other observatories of neutron star mergers. The project includes testing the new Superattenuator elements in real conditions at Sos Enattos in Sardinia, the site candidate to host ET for its extremely low seismicity.

Achieving detections of low frequency gravitational waves is crucial for the science program of the Einstein Telescope.
