The area around Milazzo is heavily polluted by the presence of power plants and a refinery. In this work, the atmospheric pollution levels resulting from two circulation regimes are simulated. First, westerly synoptic winds are considered, then the less frequent but more dangerous situation with southerly winds. In this meteorological condition, weak winds can develop that may favour the accumulation of pollutants in the most populated area of the city of Milazzo
