Stromboli consists of an active volcano about 920 meters high above sea level; the only volcano with permanent eruptive activity throughout Europe, and one of the few in the world! Its activity has an explosive character with the launch of magma fragments that fall on an uninhabited slope, the so-called "Sciara del Fuoco"; all this offers at night a pyrotechnic show also visible at a distance, hence the nickname of Stromboli: "Lighthouse of Tirrenian sea".

It was Known to the ancients with the name of Strongyle, Stromboli has been inhabited since the Bronze Age.

On the island were found the remains of a Greek necropolis dating from the fourth and third centuries BC.

The volcanic nature of Stromboli has marked the demographic trend, in fact in 1930 a very strong eruption and the consequent tsunami forced many to emigrate.

Currently the most populated slope is the eastern one; on the island side opposite the village of Stromboli there is the small village of Ginostra, populated by about 30 inhabitants and only reachable by sea.

Until a few years ago, Ginostra was not reached by electricity.

About 1.6 km from Stromboli stands the uninhabited islet of Strombolicchio, on which stands a marine light powered by solar energy.
