The Burning Plain

The Phlegraean Fields, one of the most densely inhabited places in the world, are sitting on a super-volcano. Half a million people learnt to coexist with it and with the constant eruptive activity of gas or mud, with earthquakes and with the bradyseism, a phenomenon causing the soil to slowly swell and deflate for several meters. Life on the Phlegraean Fields is a mixture of anxiety, hope and resignation, in an unique blend of emotional and geographical landscape, where the connections of humans with the nature and God is under the spell of the Volcano.
