Mt Etna first erupted in 1500 bc,  from then on it has erupted a total of 173 times. The last eruption was in the year 2006,it is still erupting to this day.

The volcano is very active on the island of sicily, Mt etna has had a lot of eruptions in the past some big and some small, There was  a big eruption in the year 1991. This went on until the year of 1993. Due to the large scale of this eruption,and  after many attempts to try to divert the larva from this eruption,the villagers where successful.
