Etna

ETNA

ETNA, the greatest active volcano in Europe has always fascinated man.

The locals have a great fear and respect of its great power as if it were a living creature and at the same time they receive great joy and sorrow from it. Joy, because Etna does not only bring about destruction, but also an endless amount of products that men learnt to use; for example the monstrous Lava flows that not only fascinate tourists because they are so spectacular, but also once they have cooled down they have been trasfomated into caves where the lava rock in then is dug up. Lava rock consists of a basaltic rock which is very hard and resistant even at very low and rigid temperatures and also at those more elevated.

Already from ages ago lava rock consists has been dug up and processed to manufacture materials for buildings and to produce ornamental articles.
