Aetna

8.0/10

Aetna (Italiane: Etna) est mons ignifer in Sicilia, maximus Siciliae mons, et maximus totius Europae vulcanus. Culmen crescit vel decrescit post aliquas eruptiones; altus dicitur hodie 3320 m esse.

Nomen montis de dea Graeca Aetna deducitur. Sunt qui reducunt illud nomen a verbo Graeco aitho, aut a verbo Punico attano.

Lava et ignis Aetnae interdum homines imminent. Omnibus annis, os montis eruptat.

Vergilius Aetnam in libro Aeneide descripsit:

Portus ab accessu ventorum immotus et ingens ipse; sed horrificis iuxta tonat Aetna ruinis; interdumque atram prorumpit ad aethera nubem, turbine fumantem piceo et candente favilla, attollitque globos flammarum et sidera lambit; interdum scopulos avolsaque viscera montis erigit eructans, liquefactaque saxa sub auras 'cum gemitu glomerat, fundoque exaestuat imo. (Aeneis 3.39)

Величественная Этна - место, где в июле лежат снежные сугробы, по застывшей лаве ползает множество божьих коровок, а облака можно потрогать...
