The Stromboli volcano forms one of the Aeolian-islands in Italy. The island of Stromboli is just 4 kilometers wide, 900 m asl, but unbelieveable 3.000 m above the bottom of the sea! In fact it is a huge nearly 4.000 m high mountain, with 3/4 below sealevel... Stromboli is one of the most active volcanoes on the earth. Stromboli has been erupting almost non-stop for the past 2.000 years. All remaining inhabitants of the Italian island of Stromboli have been evacuated amid fears of further violent volcanic eruptions. Stromboli has an official population of 450, but civil protection officials said there were only 300 there at the time because many people were already away due to the holidays and the off-peak tourist season.
