Pubblicato il 15 February 2022

The TV channels of the Sicilian volcanoes, developed by the Italian National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV), transmit video images from the surveillance cameras installed on Etna and the Aeolian Islands with the aim of offering the “vision” of Sicilian volcanoes constantly monitored by the Etneo Observatory (INGV-OE).

As a result of an INGV project still under development and implementation, the TV channels are based on , the livestreaming and video on demand platform managed by Consortium GARR, the ultra-broadband network dedicated to the Italian research and education community

On the occasion of the resumption of the paroxysmal activity of Etna on 10 February 2022, the Etneo Observatory of the INGV (INGV-OE) published on the Section's portal,, two new sections dedicated to filming in real-time from Etna and the Aeolian Islands. The new streaming channels are added to the images of the volcanic video surveillance of Etna and the Aeolian Islands which for years have been offering the public a view of the volcanoes in real time.

Specifically, the environmental and thermal shots of Etna come from the INGV cameras installed in the localities of La Montagnola, Nicolosi and Monte Cagliato; filming from the Aeolian Islands is instead broadcast by cameras installed in Stromboli, at the Lipari Observatory and inside the Volcano’s La Fossa crater.
The new service represents a new video “window” to improve knowledge and awareness of the natural elements represented by volcanoes and their fascinating and dangerous activity. is the platform dedicated to the Italian education and research community, where you can broadcast your live videos and at the same time store safely your contents, with the IDEM service ( Identity management for federated access) and on servers located in Italy, subjects to European standards.
The service was designed to be adapted to the needs of the scientific community and to meet specific requirements.
