Nautoscopio is a shelter anchored on the rocks. During the day it faces the horizon, at night it rotates on itself to frame the erupting volcano. With the flat sea it lowers almost to the surface of the water, during the storm it rises up to fifteen meters high. The Nautoscopio is installed on the sea, in front of the entrance to the city of Palermo.
