The shape of the island is strange, nearly circular a mountain like a ring in the sea. In the middle, a magnificent volcano. It seems that Hephaestus, being displeased one day, had taken the island of Thira in his hand and thrown it some distance, like a stone. It had fallen in the sea not far from Italy giving birth to the volcanic island of Stromboli. But in uprooting the center of the mountainous island, Hephaestus had left its edges, with the volcano in the middle. They say that if one were to put Stromboli back in its former place, it would take up precisely that part of the island that was pulled up. .
