Mount Etna is an active stratovolcano on the East coast of Sicily, Italy. It is the tallest active volcano in Europe and it is the highest mountain in Italy, south of the Alps. Mount Etna is only about two and a half times the height of the next largest, Mount Vesuvius. Mount Etna is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and is in an almost constant state of activity. The fertile volcanic soils support extensive agriculture, with vineyards and orchards across the lower slopes of the mountain. Due to its history of recent activity and nearby population, Mount Etna has been designated a decade volcano by the United Nations.




Mount Etna was one of the main places where Celestial Bronze is forged. It's peak was sheared off by Zeus' Master Bolt. Typhon was imprisoned here before the westward migration.

According to myths, Typhon was nearly about to destroy Zeus when the latter grabbed his Master Bolt and knocked Typhon back away from Greece where Zeus picked up Sicily and dropped it on top of Typhon.

When the flame of Western Civilization moved to the United States, the role of Mount Etna as Typhon's prison was replaced by Mount Saint Helens.
