Volcanoes isolated from the mainland and scenarios of unique stories. Stories of the Earth, stories of Man and his living on these often hostile reefs, sometimes dense with secret riches. These are the stories we will tell in this journey: births, colonizations, exchanges, trade and survival. But also traditions, maritime and peasant culture, never forgetting the splendid scenarios that made them famous tourist destinations all over the world. Stories of real life. Stories on the way.”
