Volcanic eruption of Vesuvius in March 1944. In the foreground is the village of San Sebastiano al Vesuvio. The lava flow (in the left foreground) flowed through the village on the day before this photo was taken.
In 1944 it was struck by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius during the Allies' occupation of southern Italy, but has since been rebuilt. The main attraction is the church of San Sebastiano Martire from the 16th century.
