Italy: Mount Etna

On Thursday I got four postcards: one from Italy, one from Belgium, one from Hong Kong and one from Germany.

The card from Italy shows Mount Etna. Mount Etna is an active volcano on Sicily above the convergent plate margin between the African Plate and the Eurasian Plate. It is the tallest active volcano in Europe and the most active stratovolcano in the World. At least 2700 years of its activity have been documented and it had a big influence on the volcanology. It is also known as natural laboratory for the study of ecological and biological processes. Since 2013 is Mount Etna on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
