Italy - July 30th, 2010

This image shows the southern part of the Italian peninsula and the Italian island of Sicily, in the Mediterranean Sea. The island is separated from the mainland by the Strait of Messina, which  measures 3.1 km (1.9 miles) in breadth at its narrowest point.

The Italian province at the very south of the peninsula is called Calabria. It is connected to the peninsula by the Monte Pollino massif, while on the east, south and west it is surrounded by the Ionian and Tyrrhenian seas.

Sicily is also characterized by a densely mountainous landscape. The main mountain ranges are Madonie and Nebrodi in the north and Peloritani in the north-east.
