Mount Vesuvius: In Italy there are quite a lot volcanos: some are active, that is they have enough regular eruptions in the years as the Etna and the Stromboli; others are quiescenti. In Italy, among the most important volcanos quiescenti, remembers particularly the Vesuvius, both because of this testimonies exist, still today visible, of a great eruption (many tourists go every year to visit the places in Pompeii and Ercolano, next to Naples, destroyed by this volcano) both because its summit is very particular. The history of the Vesuvius goes up again to epoch in which the eruptions were alternated to long periods of inactivity 35.000 years ago.
