Si puo ancora respirare l'odore di zolfo, anche se e piu difficile coglierne i segreti dal momento che, dopo le colate di cemento abusivo degli anni Sessanta-Settanta, la Solfatara
di Pozzuoli viene ora soffocata dai rifiuti interrati illegalmente (17).
The incident occurred at the Solfatara
Crater in Pozzuoli, a popular tourist destination. The father, Massimiliano Carrer, 45, and his wife, Tiziana Zaramella, 42, from Meolo near Venice, attempted to rescue their son, Lorenzo.
Officers said the parents tried to rescue the boy after he entered an off-limits area at the Solfatara
Crater in Pozzuoli, near Naples, and slipped.
The couple's other son, seven, who was unhurt at the Solfatara
crater in Italy, watched helplessly before sprinting off to beg passers-by for help.
The tragedy unfolded yesterday at the popular Solfatara
site, which was surrounded by a fence that was supposed to keep tourists out.
Miss Willis, Mr Williams and 9 Year 13 students had an excellent and interesting time visiting Mt Vesuvius, Pompeii, Herculaneum and Solfatara
You can at Camping Internazionale Vulcano Solfatara
, which is in the crater of a dormant volcano.
Sulphur comes into the story early: sometime around 305 AD, according to Catholic hagiography, Gennaro (Januarius), the early Christian bishop of Benevento, was martyred by the emperor Diocletian in the Solfatara
, the great volcanic crater that smoulders and quakes at Pozzuoli, to the north-west of Naples; the dried blood from his severed head, kept in two glass phials in the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, still miraculously liquifies three times a year to signify his benevolent surveillance of city affairs.
The students climbed to the top of Vesuvius and were able to get close to Solfatara
, a volcanic crater which still emits jets of steam and sulphurous fumes.
