Piano Provenzana is located at an altitude of 1800 m. a.s.l. in the municipality of Linguaglossa on the northern side of Etna Volcano. There is a 4-slope ski resort, which during 2002 was involved during the eruptions that destroyed the tourist area of ​​Piano Provenzana and therefore had to be completely rebuilt. Exactly during the night between 26 and 27 October 2002, a strong seismic swarm began in the Provenzana area, and consequently, the violent flank eruption began, which took away everything that had been built. Different vents are formed along the fracture that had just opened above the tourist zone and in the mid-morning of October 27, the lava flows covered totally the square together souvenir spot and two hotels located there. The eruption will end on 7 November of the same year. However, everything was rebuilt and Plan Provenzana continues to represent a reference point for winter and summer tourism on the highest active volcano in Europe.
