Lampedusa Island is situated 205km South of Sicily Island and 113km East of Tunisia. The islands is about 9km long and 3km wide covering an area of 20 sqkm. Though it is politically part of Italy it geologically belongs to the African continent. Even the landscape is typically African. The island had many forests until 1760 nowadays the vegetation is rather scanty.
There are a few signs showing that Lampedusa has already been settled back in early history. There are many ruins of Phoenician, Greek, Roman and Arab settlements, the first document writing about Lampedusa was written by Pope Leone III to Karl the Great around 800 a.d. It writes about a battle between the Byzantine and Sarazenes. Even today the tourists are shown some traces of a horse killed in battle in the "Cavallo Bianco" district of the island's capital city. On July 14, 1551 the Genuese Admiral Andrea Doria lost his complete fleet with 1000 people in a heavy storm here. The years after that the island was mostly inhabited by pirates and there is also a story told of Andrea Anfossi who fled from the pirate's prison, built a canoe, painted a Madonna with child onto the sails and arrived healthy back home in Imperia. In 1872 the Italians built a prison on the island and used in until WW II. In 1951 they got electricity and only in 1963 the got their first telephone on Lampedusa. The first airport was built in 1982.
