Mount Etna is an active stratovolcano in which eruptions are not always the same. Most volcano open downward to a pool of molten rock beneath the earth's surface therefore when pressure piles up, eruptions occur. Gases and rock get discharge through the opening and spill or fill the air with lava fragments. This may be one of the cause of Mount Etna eruptions.
