Sicily (Italian: Sicilia) is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea;
along with surrounding minor islands, it constitutes an autonomous region of Italy,
and it is officially referred to as Regione Siciliana (Sicilian Region).
Sicily is located in the central Mediterranean.
It extends from the tip of the Apennine peninsula,
from which it is separated only by the narrow Strait of Messina
, towards the North African coast.
Its most prominent landmark is Mount Etna, which, at 3,350 m (10,990 ft),
is the tallest active volcano in Europe and one of the most active in the world.
The island has a typical Mediterranean climate.
Sicily has a roughly triangular shape, which earned it the name Trinacria
from Greek treis, "three", and akra, "promontory".
To the east, it is separated from the Italian region of
Calabria by the Strait of Messina,
about 3 km (1.9 mi) wide in the north, and about 16 km (9.9 mi) in the southern part.
Sicily and its small surrounding islands have some highly active volcanoes.
Mount Etna is the largest active volcano in Europe and still plagues the island with black ash with its ever current eruptions.
The Aeolian Islands
in the Tyrrhenian Sea, to the northeast of mainland Sicily
exhibit a volcanic complex including Stromboli.
