Our collaborators on Stromboli
On Stromboli we have a good bunch of people to thank, probably impossible to list them all. Historically, the Zerilli and the Aquilone families helped us run the seismic station in the Volcano Guides' Office. Lately, new people have become important collaborators, like Sergio Ballarò (e.g. currently hosting a temporary station) and Dr. Jacopo Crimi (e.g. developing the Monitoring leaflet).
