In 2017, the largest among the 20 administrative regions of Italy was Sicily, which at same time was also the biggest island in the country. On the other hand, the smallest region of Belpaese was Aosta Valley, located in the north on the border with Switzerland and France.
The island of volcanoes
The symbol of Sicily, Mount Etna, is one of the most active volcanos on the planet. But Etna is not the only phenomena of this kind on the territory. In fact, there are other five volcanoes in the region. Overall, there were nine active volcanoes in Italy in 2019: six in Sicily, two in Campania (Mount Vesuvius and Phlegraean Fields) and one in the area of Colli Albani in Lazio.
