Give me silence, water, hope.
Give me the fight, the iron, the volcanoes.
(Pablo Neruda)

VOLCANO

Vulcano, with Vulcanello is the island closest to the Sicilian coast, one of the fascinating "Seven Sisters" that make up the Aeolian Islands. Homer described the image of the reign of Aeolus: " We reached the island Aeolia. Where Aeolus, son of Hippote, a favorite of the immortal gods, lived." The island is the ship; it has everything around the shatterproof and smooth bronze wall, stands on a high cliff. “Indeed, the mountainous and volcanic rocks are evidence of an event when boiling lava created and lifted the island from the depths of the sea.
Between Vulcano and Lipari after a series of marine eruptions in 183 BC the island of Vulcanello was formed, recently it has been identified with the island of Hephaestus by classical authors, it is the youngest strip of land in Europe. Only in the 16th century, after the incredible storms, it joined the island of Jerà and formed the 200-meter wide isthmus, which gave rise to a beautiful black sand beach in the western part of the bay, and the second - with white sand East.
A series of fumaroles formed on this isthmus at the foot of the cliff, as in the sea as on the beach, which continuously heats the thermal pool with weakly mineralized water and mud with a high sulfur content.
