Surface manifestations

The geodiversity of the Biancane shows itself on the surface in a landscape that reminds of Dante’s Inferno. We walk on surprisingly hot rocks and we are surrounded by plumes of vapour, the “fumacchi.” The colour of the soil is peculiar, in some areas the geothermal alteration has resulted in white rocks and other bright ocher rocks. Our sense of smell is stimulated by hydrogen sulphide emanations, while our gaze remains captured by splendid yellow sulfur crystals.
