Etna volcano update: Volcano calm at surface but for how long?

Etna's trmor amplitude (ESLN station, INGV Catania)
There has been no particular surface activity at the volcano since the violent summit eruptions in late May, but the volcanic tremor amplitude has been gradually rising over the past days.
This could [speculation!] indicate a phase of magma migrating to the surface, and possibly herald new activity in the near future. Etna, always good for surprises, will tell.
Etna has remained calm at the surface since the most recent eruptive phase (violent strombolian activity from the NE and Voragine summit craters) ended on 26 May. Lees alle
The violent strombolian activity from the Voragine summit crater continued all though Wednesday (25 May) and the following night, but gradually decreased and ceased yesterday. At the moment, no significant eruptive activity is going on. ... Lees alle
The 4th episode of lava fountaining has started at the Voragine summit crater. Lees alle
Starting from 21:00 this evening weak Strombolian activity has again started from the Voragine crater together with some ash emission. Lees alle
Contrary to what it might have looked like, the volcano's activity from last night did not continue to increase, but quieted down for now. Lees alle
