Sicily, Etna: the secret about the age of the Bove Valley revealed.

Italian research, published in the Journal of Volcanology and Geothermal Research and conducted by the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV), in collaboration with the University of Urbino, has finally revealed the secret of the age of the Bove valley.

The Valle del Bove valley is a large basin located on the eastern slope of the volcano Etna, within the protected area of the Etna park, in the municipality of Zafferana Etnea. The research, carried out by means of particularly technological and complicated measurements and examinations, has revealed not only the dating of the landslide that formed the valley, but also the lateral eruptions that have taken place over the centuries.

Join us on this splendid journey to one of the most evocative places on the entire Sicilian island.
