Mount Vesuvius as a central metaphor for the complex relationships between society and politics in Italy. Its powerful, unpredictable, destructive existence along with its location in a densely populated area on the Mediterranean coast ensure that it is ever present in the collective memory. Science has yet to discover a way to control this immense force of nature, and yet it is invisibly tied to the inhabitants and their environment.
