Historical notes and some curiosities about Stromboli

Stromboli is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Its almost persistent activity is documented since classical Greek and Latin sources. The typical emissions of incandescent lapilli from the summit craters, clearly visible at night, have always guided the navigation of the sailors who sailed across the southern Tyrrhenian Sea.

This persistent background or ordinary activity is sometimes interrupted by much more energetic episodes, or rather by an “extraordinary” activity. This more energetic activity is capable of generating dangerous phenomena, which can pose a threat to tourists who regularly, in the summer, climb up to the summit area of ​​the volcano to admire this spectacle of nature.

It is clear how important it is to know the transition between the ordinary and the extraordinary activity of the volcano. The Project One try to distinguish the signs that may suggest that the volcano is about to stage a new chapter of its dangerous extraordinary activity.
