Description of the run
The excursion begins from one of the best preserved volcanic complex of the island. Starting from the Wood of La Maddalena in Casamicciola Terme, which stands on a volcanic dome, we’ll reach the border between the Montagnone covered with wild Mediterranean bush and Monte Rotaro, reign of a thick pine forest. Going across the top of the crater, and admiring the bottom, we’ll go up to a series of  active"fumaroles" , proof, with the thermal springs, of the vitality of the island. There, among the variegated flora, there’s  the rare species Cyperus polystachyus (fumaroles’ papyrus), species not endemic, but that has found in some areas of this island a microhabitat favorable for its growth. We’ll go then  to the Volcano "Fondo Ferraro" to get to the small town of Fiaiano and then dive into the green Pine forest, which stands on the flow of the Arso Crater (the last eruption of the island in 1301). The run ends going back to the Port of Ischia.
