Stromboli volcano eruptions:
Persistant (near-constant) activity since at least 2-3000 years. Lava flow eruption from Dec. 2002-July 2003, and in March 2007.
Typical eruption style:

Thermal image of the upper Sciara del Fuoco of Stromboli
The effusive eruption that had started on 7 August seems to be ending: the lava flow emitted from the 650 m vent at the eastern base of the summit crater complex has decreased a lot two days ago and seems to have almost (or completely) stopped by today. ...more

Lava flows on Stromboli last evening (photo: Ferruccio Ferrari)
No major changes have occurred at the volcano: Lava effusion continues from the 650 m vent and feeds active lava flows on the upper Sciara del Fuoco. From the lava flow fronts, incandescent blocks detach and roll down the slope. ...more

Lava flows on Stromboli's Sciara del Fuoco and small ash emission this morning (INGV webcams)
There are no signs the effusive eruption is slowing down. A lava flow is being erupted from the vent at 650 m elevation and currently feeds two active branches on the upper Sciara del Fuoco. ...more
