Etna (Mungibeddu or ‘a Muntagna in Sicilian) is a volcanic complex that originated in the Quaternary period and is the highest active volcano in Europe. Its frequent eruptions over the course of history have sometimes profoundly altered the surrounding landscape, on several occasions threatening the populations that have settled around it over the millennia, making it one of the most active volcanoes in the world and one of the most studied. On 21 June 2013, the XXXVII session of the UNESCO Committee included Mount Etna in the list of World Heritage Sites.
