Monte Amiata seen from near Radicofani, E of the volcano. The late-Pleistocene lava dome complex is located about 20 km NW of Lake Bolsena in the southern Tuscany region of Italy. The complex formed during two major eruptive episodes about 300,000 and 200,000 years ago. No eruptive activity has occurred during the Holocene, but thermal activity resulting in cinnabar mineralization continues at a producing geothermal field near the town of Bagnore.
