Italy is certainly undergoing considerable seismic activity at the current time so it is entirely feasible that her volcanic locations may also be awakening in tandem with the seismic movement. Another development to keep a close eye on. Thank you once more Alvin, for bringing this to our attention.

What appears to be a new fumarole appeared near Rome’s International Fiumicino airport Saturday morning. A vent producing small geyser-like fountains of steam, water and mud was suddenly opened in the ground near a road crossing near Fiumicino. Geologists are currently examining the phenomenon. It is still a bit unclear whether it is not a man-made accident caused by a broken pipe or similar (which might well be the case).
