What does it mean to live in the shadow of a volcano that can erupt at any time?
Millions of people around the world live in the shadow of a volcano. We will immerse into this precarious style of living by choosing five situations that are unique among the volcano communities of the world. Three of these communities are located in the country with the two most active volcanoes in Europe - Italy, one in Spain and one in Greece.. By way of our unique access to geologists, volcanologists, agronomists, archaeologists and civil defence operatives, as well as our natural, unscripted interactions with the local people residing there, we will tell you the story of what it is like to live in the shadow of five volcanoes.
