Filicudi counts about 200 inhabitants. Electricity arrived here only in 1986. A few artists chose this island as a home in the late seventies and this attracted other artists, giving it a creative and contemporary cultural vibe that enjoys its peak moment during its Biennale, which has gained importance on the international art scene. Touring it by boat allows you to see the famous Grotta del Bue Marino (Cave of the Sea-Ox), a spectacular snorkeling site, and La Canna (the cane) a vertical sea-stack, proof of the antiquity of the island’s volcanic activity.
