Mount Etna is the highest Mediterranean island mountain (Sicily) and the most active stratovolcano in the world. World Heritage Site (19,237 ha) comprises the most strictly protected and scientifically important area of Mount Etna, and forms part of the Parco dell’Etna Regional Nature Park. The eruptive history of the volcano can be traced back 500,000 years and at least 2,700 years of this activity has been documented, making its notoriety, scientific importance, and cultural and educational value of global significance.
I love the contrast between the constructive and destructive force of nature, with very feeble line to divide them. I think it shows just how fragile and uncertain this world is. Great matching stamp, was so thrilled to get this for my collection! Grazie Daniele:))
