The wildfires broke out in Italy in early July, with the current summer being the hottest in over 200 years. The most violent fires were registered in the region of Lazio, including near the country’s capital Rome, in Campania and on Sicily. According to law enforcement agencies, in many cases the fires are caused by arsons.
