This perspective provides a powerful look at the planet where we live and the civilization we are creating. Through our Imagery, Shop, and Collaborations we aim to inspire the Overview Effect.
Mount Etna is an active stratovolcano on the east coast of Sicily, Italy, between the cities of Messina and Catania. At a height of 10,912 feet (3,326 m), it is by far the largest active volcano in Italy — roughly two and a half times taller than Mount Vesuvius. Etna is one of the world’s most active volcanoes and has erupted at least 49 times since January 1955.
