Partially in the Sicilian port town of Pozzallo, mainly on Isola del Terrore Buio.

In English, the island is ominously called The Isle of Dark Terror. A remote isle of volcanic origin in the Mediterranean Sea, 14 miles south-southwest of Sicily. It once served as a small Carthaginian naval base until it was sacked in a Roman victory near the end of the first Punic War in 240 BC. Since then, the small island and its rockier sister, Isola della Pietra, have been claimed as territory of Tunisia, Malta and Italy. Despite Malta having the strongest claim to the islands, Italy sold them in 2008 to the wealthy Linden Murray.
