In the beginning of December, 2015 several paroxysmal episodes were generated by Mount Etna. One of them came out from the crater called "Voragine" which created a magnificent spectacle and a seven-km-height impressive tornado cloud as well as high fountains of eruptive lava. These phenomenons lasted a couple of days.
