Europe

Italy is a country on the Mediterranean coast of Europe, consisting of a boot-shaped peninsula and a number of islands, the largest of which are Sicily and Sardinia.[1]

History

In 79 A.D., the warlock Zaccaria Innocenti cast Tarantallegra on himself and danced around inside the crater of Mount Vesuvius,[2] a volcano located 9 kilometres (5.6 miles) east of the city of Naples.[3] The mountain also erupted that year, destroying the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, and killing at least 1500 people.[3]

A sub-committee of sorcerers from the island of Sardinia did something of note in September of 1289. Professor Binns mentioned this during a lecture on the International Warlock Convention of 1289 he gave to his second-year History of Magic students in 1992.[4]
