There was a special attraction on the coastal road. At night, the current lava flow had made it impassable. The nearby volcanic spots showed corresponding remains of past lava flows. In addition to tree skeletons, lava columns could be seen, which are created by coating them with flowing lava from trees. Once the organic tree remains have disappeared, the lava columns remain as memorials.

On our journey through Naples to Stromboli in 1986, we first became acquainted with volcanism and with two powerful Italian volcanoes: Vesuvius and Stromboli. While we received moving impressions of the violence and impact of volcanic eruptions from the past when we visited Pompeii, the active Stromboli immediately allowed us to look into his Hellmouth.
