Around Mount Vesuvius 2020


Vesuvius is the king of the landscape around Naples.

Its double crater dominates the area - physically at 1278 meters high,

but also psychologically.

More and more people are building houses on its slopes, moving closer to it,

while the city of Naples has complex evacuation plans in place,

to save the lives of around 4 million people, if.  


Dozens of earthquakes are measured on Vesuvius every day.

Most of them below the limit that humans can sense.

But there are tremors, constantly below the surface.

Naples, painstakingly held after earthquakes,

and above the earth poverty shakes the land and the mafia,

and with it the hopelessness of day laborers and beggars.

Others deserve a golden nose.


Liquid magma ten kilometers underground, a bubble,

which extends into the Phlegraean Fields,which are 20 kilometers away.

In the churches the blood of the saints,

also liquid on high days  of the church year,

one last stop before the abyss.  


The abyss of the volcano is closed by rubble, but something big is underneath

that moves and pushes up.


The breath of the black ash covers the land for hundreds of kilometers.

The beaches beyond the mountains are black too,

a black, glittering sand with garbage on it.

The fishermen's small catch is unloaded.  


How is it possible to deal with things that smolder underground?
