Trip to Sicily

Stromboli and Vulcano : The mythical islands

Travel details Sicily (Family in the Aeolian Islands)

Stromboli is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. The island is best known for the Stromboli volcano, which rises 924m above sea level and is more than 2,200m deep on the seabed. It was from its active craters that Jules Verne’s characters in Journey to the Centre of the Earth emerged and it was here that the love between Ingrid Bergman and director Roberto Rosellini was cemented during the filming of the movie named after the island. A geological feature of the volcano is the Sciara del Fuoco, a large channel-shaped depression, created over the last 13,000 years by several collapses on the northwest face of the cone. Along its solidified margins, as if it were a river, blocks of lava and fire flow down to the sea after each explosion.

Vulcano: The Volcano of Origins. The word volcano is derived from Vulcano stratovolcano in the Aeolian Islands in Italy. According to Roman mythology he was the god of fire and volcanoes Vulcanus had his forge here. Vulcan was the son of Jupiter and Juno and husband of Venus. He was the forger of iron and creator of weapons and armour for gods and heroes. He was called Thermessa the hot, Therasia, hot earth, and Hiera, the sacred forge of Hephaestus (Greek mythology) where the Cyclops forged the thunderbolts for Jupiter.
