What a great show is the spontaneous vegetation of Etna!,  Usually everybody thinks about a volcano without vegetation instead is the same volcanic ash that creates a fertile environment for trees and plants and  also the right balance of the minerals present in it.

The first snow has fallen on Mount Etna. This year, earlier than usual, the summit shines in us bright white. This weekend winter has also started in Sicily.

In the afternoon of the 12th April 2012, it came at the New Southeast Crater of Mount Etna once an outbreak, the 24th since the start of the eruptive phase, in January 2011 and the 6th in the current year. The event was after a interval of 10 days of relative calm and was like in almost all important features such as fountains, intense emission of ash and small Lavastones, and lava flowed toward the Valle del Bove, the previous one.

Already after 3 hours it was all over.
