Valle del Bove

Ten years ago, Etna started one of its spectacular displays of steam rings (bottom left photo, October 1999). Vesuvius too (aerial photo taken during the flight to Erta Ale in February 2008) erupted huge steam rings, like that on a medal at bottom right, dated 1830 AD. It shows the Sebeto River reaching out to one of them with his left hand.
