Today my project about the volcanic island of Stromboli is on the New York Times, online and paper. The story came out following the publication of a scientific paper by volcanologist Maurizio Ripepe and his team at the University of Florence, who provided a system of alert to warn residents before paroxysmal eruptions. Stromboli has become my magic refuge in the last few years and I’m thrilled this publication is accompanied by the words of Robin Andrews, exquisite writer and fellow volcano addict.

Stromboli’s volcano is always active, always at the brink of devastating paroxysms. For those who visit the island as tourists or scientists, it is a spectacle like no other.
