Sicily's Mt. Etna is one of the earth's most active volcanoes.  In the 1990s, it was added to the list of 'Decade Volcanos' by the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior (IAVCEI). This project was initiated by the United Nations to prepare for disasters created by volcanoes; Etna was selected due to its recent activity and the risk presented to nearby residents.  In this aerial video, drone pilot Haussmannvisuals provides a rare look inside the colossal landmark.

Italy's Pompeii Archaeological Park marks the site of one of the most well-documented events of the Antiquity: the destruction of the city of Pompeii when nearby Mt. Vesuvius catastrophically erupted in 79 AD.  The explosion buried the city and several surrounding towns under 4-6 meters (13-20 ft.) of volcanic ash, instantly killing all of its 10k+ inhabitants.  Located in the (southern) Campania region just outside of the city of Naples, the archaeological park can be seen from above in this drone video by mikyciancio.

The Drone ...

At 16 years old, top AirVuz content creator Kelly Needleman may be young, but he's been surrounded by artists his entire life as well as a fasctination with Italy. Integrating drones in to his film work seemed only natural to him, especially when flying around the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. Flying though Venice and the Dolomites, however, was a little trickier. Hear about the challenge of flying in those areas and about some of Kelly's favorite shots on this episode of The Drone Dish, hosted by Tyler Mason.
