Volcanoes of Sicily: Vulcano Stromboli, Etna

Volcanoes have always been a frightening, amazing, and liberating force for people’s imagination.

Many legends, anecdotes and stories surround these fascinating and dangerous works of the earth. They range from Empedocles who ran into Etna’s crater to learn the secrets of its eruptionive activity to Theodoric, the king of Ostrogoths, who was eventually dragged into it on his skittish horse.

The tormented soul of a land full of memories and strong smells is represented by the tremors of earthquakes and the smoke, ashes, fire, and molten rocks. Let’s listen and watch the song of a thousand Cicadas while we observe a fertile land created by lava soil. Capers, figs, brooms and rosemary.
