The book "Ivan Aivazovski. Paintings, drawings and watercolours from the collections of St Petersburg", (Palace Editions 2003) reads:
Sea Strait with a lighthouse was one of seven pictures, painted by Ivan Aivazovsky in Italy 1841. It appears to depict the stretch of water running between the islands Capri and Ischia. This was probably the picture sent by the artist from Rome to St. Petersburg in April 1942 and exhibited at the Imperial Academy of Arts as Island of Ischia at sunset. The early 1840s mark the beginning of Aivazovskys "pink period".

If it is like this , It seems, that the mountain in the background is the Vesuvius.
