When I was in primary school (more than 50 yrs ago), Mount Etna was credited with a height of 3263 m.
Nowadays, the summit is variously credited: textbooks say 3343 m, google says 3350 m, Wikipedia says 3326 m. Other sources say 3330 m.

Anyhow, in 50 years this volcano has grown by more than 60 meters!

Ciao from Massimo

Thanks, Massimo. Yes, this mountain is immense - its hard to appreciate its sheer size, not only its height but especially its girth, without driving around it.

We really enjoyed the wines made on its foothills, especially the delicate whites.

Every plant that grows in this lava-enriched soil will have a particular and distinctive flavor, next time you'll have to try ice cream with Bronte's pistachios! (gelato al pistacchio)

A spectacular display - and a great start to a day.

Thank you, Keith.  I didn't have a camera when I noticed this.  It was worth rushing back to my room to grab the camera.
