"The "Dancing Feet" spell has its origins in ancient Italy, but is best remembered for its improper usage by Warlock Zaccaria Innocenti who is credited with conjuring a 'dance' within Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD."
—How Mt. Vesuvius erupted[1]

Mount Vesuvius is a volcano in the province of Naples in Italy. In 79 AD, Zaccaria Innocenti made inappropriate use of the Dancing Feet Spell spell, "conjuring a 'dance'" within the volcano[1] that resulted in its eruption.[2] This disaster destroyed the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, killing at least 1500 people,[2] but made Innocenti's improper usage of the spell legendary.[1]
