Italia es un país volcánicamente activo, que contiene los volcanes activos sólo en el continente europeo. Actividad volcánica del país es debido principalmente a la presencia, a poca distancia al sur de la frontera entre la placa euroasiática y la placa africana. El magma entró en erupción por Italia volcanes se piensa como resultado del hacia arriba forzamiento de roca derretida por la subducción de una placa por debajo de otro.

Existen tres grupos principales de volcanismo: una línea de centros volcánicos ejecutando noroeste a lo largo de la parte central de la península italiana (véase arco volcánico Campaniano); un clúster en el noreste de Sicilia; y otro grupo alrededor de la mediterránea isla de Pantelleria.
