Two teams of scientists explore the fascinating geologic story of Italy: the continuously erupting volcanoes, the violent earthquakes, the clash of mighty tectonic plates, and the rising of the mountains that produced Michelangelo's famous marble. If they can determine if the northern Apennines are still alive and growing, they might better understand where future earthquakes might strike this highly unstable land.

A fascinating examination of the geological story of Italy, particularly in the unique qualities of its volcanoes and the way the land interacts with the seismic forces of plate tectonics. Recommended for anyone with even a passing interest in the region.
