Lipari, the ancient Meligunis, is the largest island of the Eolian Archipelago and its economic and cultural center.

Background:

It is located immediately north of Vulcano Island. The island contains numerous small stratovolcanoes, craters, and lava domes on a basement of submarine volcanic deposits.
The latest eruption in historic times, probably in 729 AD, at Monte Pilatus at the NE tip of the island, formed a spectacular obsidian lava flow. Since Ancient times, the island has been known for its rich deposit of pumice (the largest deposit in the world!) and obsidian, - a highly valued raw material to manufacture tools such as knives and arrowheads in the Stone and Bronze Age. Obsidian from Lipari has been found throughout the Mediterranean, proving that a vast trade network existed already during the 2nd millennium BC.
