Giuseppe De Rosa | Volcanological Guide

Graduated in Geology at University of Florence.
In 2003 I went for the first time on Stromboli Island as a researcher and from that moment I felt an incredible passion for volcanoes and for this magical land where I permanently live now.
My huge interest in volcanoes lead me becoming a full time Volcanological Guide.
Passionate and in love with this island, I always try to discover more and more secrets of the impressive “IDDU” (Him) and during my excursions my aim is to transmit the emotions and the relationship I feel.

Marco Kulot | UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide

I was born in 1987 in a city but I have spent most of my life among the mountains, not just for my job but above all for pleasure. I tried different activities, according to the season, but always lead by the same passion and emotion.
Enthusiast traveler I have visited different countries but I definitely fell in love just with the wild beauty of Stromboli and the majesty of Etna.
That’s why I decided to settle down here and I’ve been guiding groups along the trails of the magical active volcanoes in Sicily for many years.

Massimo Flaccavento | Volcanological Guide

Born in Ragusa in 1979, I am a great mountain lover.
At the age of 17 a first climbing class introduced me to my future reason for living, at the age of 20 a travel to the Alps confirmed me I would have never stopped to climb and walk over the mounts.
Etna, the home volcano, played a vital part; thanks to “Her”, silent and omnipresent master, I’ve grown as a man, as an alpinist and then as a Guide.
Being a Mountain guide is not just the realization of a dream but it means to transmit passion and to become a reference point for those who rely on us.
