The MEV project aims at the realization of a facility devoted to the Muography of the Etna Volcano. A muon tracking telescope with high imaging resolution was designed and tested during 2017. The telescope is a tracker based on extruded scintillating bars and on an innovative read-out architecture. It is composed of three XY planes with a sensitive area of 1 square meter; the angular resolution does not exceed 0.4 msr and the total angular aperture is about $\pm 45^{\circ}$. The test phase started in January and ended successfully at the end of July 2017.
