During the last week of April, the team of HECLA found itself on the volcanically Italian island of Sicily for a stay in a high hotel perched in the city of Taormina, the italian Saint Tropez! To celebrate there cheerfully the twelfth year of existence of the company. Technical presentations organized by some of us punctuated by fruitful exchanges accompanied these moments of teamwork of the first day. Other moments of relaxation allowing the group to visit the island and its magnificences without omitting to climb on the slopes of Etna in eruptive mode and all this in the beautiful state of mind which reigns within the company. ?Long live HECLA, HEKLA and ETNA!
