“Aeolian Islands: Volcanic Islands. Volcanoes isolated from the mainland and, as such, scenarios of unique stories. Stories of the Earth, stories of Man and his life on these often hostile rocks, sometimes full of secret riches.
These are the stories we will tell on this journey: births, colonizations, exchanges, businesses and survival. But also traditions, seafaring and peasant culture, never forgetting the splendid scenery that made them famous tourist destinations all over the world.
Real life stories. Stories on the way "
