One of the most historic volcanic disasters in history is once again showing eminent signs of another massive eruption in Italy, according to a new report from The Christian Science Monitor a study recently published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters indicated that about 19 miles away from the heart of Rome, an ancient volcanic district called the Colli Albani is once again stirring.

The report indicates that the Colli Albani, which is a 9-mile-long semicircle of hills on the outskirts of Rome, last erupted 36,000 years ago, geologists previously classified it as extinct – until about 20 years ago. Since that time, scientists have used these symptoms, along with satellite data and information about the volcano’s previous eruptions, to evaluate the risk that the Colli Albani poses to the surrounding region.
