Caption: Lawyer Primo Veneroso studying the history of Ferdinandea island. Ferdinandea is a volcanic sea mount around 30 kilometres south of Sicily, Italy. Occasionally its eruptions eject enough material to raise it above sea level. This last happened in 1831, and its appearance led to a sovereignty dispute. It was first claimed by the British, who called it Graham Island, and also by the Sicilians (calling it Ferdinandea) and the French (who named it Giulia). The dispute was only resolved when the new island was eroded below sea level several months later. In the early 2000s, activity implied that Ferdinandea, at the time around eight metres below the surface, was about to reappear.
