  • 2017: A “hot” summer on Mount Vesuvius !
    2017: A “hot” summer on Mount Vesuvius ! During the 2017 summer season, the Vesuvius National Park was struck by a devastating fire event which caused massive damage to the forest heritage on all flanks of the volcano. Large quantities of ashes resulting from the burning of tens of hectares of Mediterranean scrubs have been dispersed in the atmosphere. The fire event has produced extensive colts of smoke affecting a huge area including several human settlements, as observable in the ESA Sentinel 2B satellite image of July 12…
