Carlo Gemmellaro Wikipedia
Carlo Gemmellaro was an Italian naturalist and geologist. As volcanologist he studied Etna in Sicily; his studies are summarized in the monograph Vulcanologia dell'Etna 1859-1860 which is certainly the most mature product of the Gemmellaro research, synthesis of observations carried for decades and successful attempt of a modern volcanic theory. His last opera, Un addio al maggior vulcano d'Europa ("A farewell to the greatest volcano in Europe") as well as a brief autobiography, is also an emotional farewell to the main object of his scientific studies.
