This is just the latest of a series of earthquakes that have been occurring lately.

There’s a general anxiety among people about the Etna’s recent eruptions, and the memory of a very strong earthquake that hit the villages of Milo and Zafferana on the 26th December of 2018 is still vivid. Shall we have to fear our Mountain?

Etna is the tallest active volcano in Europe and it offers a breathtaking view of the crater, thick chestnut and beechwoods and flowery meadows. For lovers of nature and culture is in an exceptional location, where you can make beautiful excursions on foot or by bike in the surrounding mountains or in the villages at the foot of it. Over the years there have been many eruptions that have often damaged neighbouring and distant small towns. Eruptions are often accompanied by earthquakes such as the last one we experienced in 2018. It reached a magnitude of 4.8 on the Richter scale, causing damage to hundreds of people and more than a thousand homeless people.

During the last weeks on Mount Etna a lava flow headed into the Valley of the Bove. The phenomenon has been accompanied by loud roars and the emission of a column of eruptive cloud that dropped lapilli and lava. The rain of lapilli and the huge amount of ash are testing the province of Etna and the damage to the agricultural sector is facing considerable prospects. To these, we should add the cost to remove the ash volcanic from the roofs of homes and irreversible damage such as the lost revenue guaranteed by tourism for the coronavirus pandemic.
