Silvestri Mountains formed after the eruption of 1982 along a radial fracture (called "bottoniera") from which 5 eruptive cones emerged.
Between Mt. Silvestri Superiore and the one immediately below, called Mt. Silvestri Inferiore, there is the road leading from Zafferana and Nicolosi to Sapienza Mountain Hut, an obliged destination for the visitors of the southern slope of Etna.
