Actually, it seems like an eruption of the Stromboli volcano isn't all that rare.

[M]ild eruptions of Italy’s Stromboli Volcano are so frequent and numerous that an entire style of volcanism—strombolian—is named after the volcano.

Delicious. And, yes, if you're wondering, it does seem like the Calzone-like food was named after the volcano. Perhaps having something to do with the center being boiling-lava hot.
