It is known for its eruption on August 24, 79 AD, in which several urban centers were buried, including the cities of Pompeii and part of Herculaneum. After that episode, the volcano has erupted on numerous occasions and violently. For this reason, it is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world, since around three million people live in its surroundings and it could cause serious consequences. It is the only volcano located in continental Europe that has suffered an eruption in the 20th century, in 1944, destroying much of the city of San Sebastiano.
