The island of Vulcano is part of the Aeolian archipelago and represents the emerged part of an active volcano. The last eruption occurred from 1888 to 1890. So far, the volcano has recorded intense gas emission activity, even at high temperatures, from the crater of La Fossa and near Porto di Levante.
The emission of volcanic gases from underground and from fumaroles is the most frequent phenomenon, but phreatic explosions, earthquakes, landslides and tsunamis can also occur.
