the antiquity, in fact it was called the lighthouse of the

helped by the sunny mediterranean climat and fertile soil that made
possible a consistent production of malvasia grapefruit, olive and
capers; the second one was encouraged by the deep seas rich of larges
tuna fishes. At beginning of the XX centuty about 5000 people were
living in Stromboli.
1930 a big eruption and a tsunami scared the population, so most of
them decided to emigrate to new countries like Australia, leaving only
a few hundreds of people.

spaces, becomes with harmony part of the wonderful landscape, rich of
a little bit more than 400 people live in Stromboli, but the touristic
