About

Magmatrek was created in 2002 by a group of volcanologic guides who live and work in Stromboli and Ginostra and share a mutual passion for the island and its volcano. Our aim is to promote the natural and cultural heritage of Sicily and the Aeolian archipelago.
During the excursions we seek to convey to the participants our long-standing experience and knowledge of the archipelago’s anthropological, historical and natural science aspects. We try to provide detailed information about the flora, fauna and geology of the island.
Our practical experience and formal technical training allow us to guarantee a maximum level of safety during excursions. We speak English, French, German and Spanish.
Magmatrek’ guides are part of the ”Collegio regionale Guide Alpine e Vulcanologiche Sicilia” and/or of the “Collegi Regionali Guide Alpine Italiane”.
Zaia

Mario Zaía

Known to all as Zazà, was born in Lipari but the wind carried him to Stromboli more than 30 years ago.
Aeolian to the core, he is known by everyone (and that means everyone) – if he didn’t exist one would have to invent him. He is Stromboli’s historic guide.

Russo

Lorenzo Russo

Born in the city but an islander by choice, has visited and loved Stromboli ever since his childhood days.
He has a degree in biology and has studied all the island’s natural aspects. No doubt, he is deeply fascinated by the volcano.

Pruiti

Mario Pruiti

Was born in the Sicilian Nebrodi Mountains, lives in Ginostra and knows its every secret. His passion are the social sciences (he studied political science), and he loves to show visitors the island’s anthropological aspects.
