Short summary
The Campi Flegrei volcano in Italy displays hot fumarolic solfataras famous since Roman times. We use the solfataric mineralizations to investigate the local setting, evolution and geohazards. These provide information on hydrothermal activities that have been stable over the past 20 years. They reflect extreme conditions associated with the fluid overflow from subsurface and surface waters through a fracturing conduit. The solfataras are toxic and represent an extreme environment for life.
