Campi Flegrei on the cover of National Geographic
“The Campi Flegrei are our supervolcano,” writes geologist Mario Tozzi, “a complex and young system composed of some 30 volcanoes. […] Today its state is quiescent, but the level of attention is nonetheless high.” Illustrating the cover story in the March issue of National Geographic Italia is the reportage “Terra Instabilis” shot by Alessandro Gandolfi who traveled for two weeks visiting the Vesuvian area and the Campi Flegrei. A land that shakes all the time, where nearly 3,000 tremors have been recorded in the past two years. And where the inhabitants have for centuries developed a visceral relationship with volcanoes made up of everyday routines and reverential respect.
