What images evokes in your mind the word "Vesuvius"?

Some would like to answer this question: "Naples and its beautiful gulf: in fact Vesuvius is always behind the postcards or pictures of the city"; Some would say, "Obviously, the eruption of 79 d.C. Which literally sealed under a thick layer of ashes and lapilli Pompeii and Herculaneum, giving us a modern snapshot of two Roman cities "; Others, those who are fond of nature and geology, would mention the Vesuvius National Park, those guided tour allows you to see the crater, the fumaroles, the signs of the various eruptions and minerals and to enjoy a breathtaking view of the gulf inside of Naples; Others would still think of the danger represented by Vesuvius, as it is a volcano still active and therefore at risk of eruptions.

But are you sure Vesuvius is just this?
Only in the mind of very few people the word Vesuvius would conjure up two ancient stories, alluding to a "still unknown" face of this fascinating volcano, that is, so to speak, economic-productive. One tells that Lucifer, an evil angel, stole a piece of Paradise and brought it to Earth, thus forming the wonderful Gulf of Naples; To discover this theft Jesus mourned, wept, and his tears fell on Mount Vesuvius; from these tears were born the vines from which he was born and still a very delicious wine: the so-called "Lacryma Christi". The other legend says, however, that the inhabitants of Thessaly, in the region of ancient Greece, planted the first vines on Mount Vesuvius already in the late V century. B.C. And that forever Bacco, god of wine, would love the slopes of the volcanic mountain for his fine wine. Both legends show that ever since ancient times the lazy, dark and porous soil, which requires little water, the Vesuvio slopes was a perfect cradle for viticulture (all auctoctone vines and hence only found in this area) and therefore The production of wine.
