“Going to Sicily is better than going to the moon”, said Gabriel García Márquez.
In Sicily the lunar landscape is Mount Etna, the “mungibeddu”, the highest active volcano in Europe, called by Sicilian people “a muntagna”. It is almost a lighthouse in the center of Sicily; it protects Catania city; it is visible from Syracuse, astonishing city and it shows up above the horizon saying “hello” to Enna, midpoint of Sicily. Mount Etna is a separated world, it shows a face of a different Sicily that it is not only beaches and crystal sea. In winter Etna black ground meets a white magic snow and everything looks amazing! In spring it is time for a bit of yellow thanks to broom Blossom.
Etna Natural Park born in 1987, it is the first Sicilian Park. It is one of the few only active volcano in the world and you can visit it. On Mount Etna you can also find the “Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica”, since 2013 UNESCO included this wonderful volcano and its land in the List of World Heritage Sites that represent 500.000 years of history. Visiting Mount Etna is a trip in the trip, a magical landscape that fascinated intellectuals people who work in the film industry and in particular Pier Paolo Pasolini, who set many scenes of his movies like: “Vangelo secondo Matteo”, “Porcile”, “Teorema” and “I racconti di Canterbury”.
