The Festival

"Volcanic Attitude" is a contemporary culture festival that hosts artists and researchers in a program of explorations, conferences, and performances between Naples and Vulcano (Aeolian Islands).

Volcanic Attitude connects the research of artists and experts from various scientific disciplines with volcanic territories and the primary forces of nature, to investigate the ways in which we act and think, and how these change in relation to the place and the tools we use.


Volcanic Attitude

2024 edition

18 - 21 June


High Deep is the third edition of Volcanic Attitude on the Aeolian Islands. The festival takes us from the depths of the sea to stellar constellations in the sky. It offers a visionary journey from submarine volcanoes and studies on oceans and their role in climate change to the depths of 'lost skies' and ancient stars. The trembling of the volcanic earth beneath our steps guides us on the way.

The performative works and installations by Italian and international artists will be in dialogue with the contributions of researchers from the National Institute of Volcanology and the Marine Biology Institute.
