I'm truly mersmerized by the beauty of those ancient buildings
and some of them are well maintained as if they were just lately constructed.

Fountain of Amenano (1887), by Tito Angelini


A little fount in the court of "Villa Cerami". It has an old part from an other fount (of Middle Age? of Renaissance?) that was zoomorphe.


"Villa Cerami". Triumph of Baroque: it has the architecture of a country villegiature (watering place, court, stable, external staircase), but was built inside the citizen walls!

Catania - San Nicolò l'Arena


Second Cloister.
This was the original convent of the Benedictines (1558) in Rinascimental style, ended in 1608 with the wonderful Fountain. The worst time was after the Unity of Italy: the cloister became a gym and tha fountain destroied (1866). In 2002 the rest of it were restored after findings all the parts.


The terrace. The baroque convent does not conflict with the rinascimental parts.


The kitchen. This is just the hood...


Detail. These are majolicas from Naples, from the better schools of the middle XVIII century.

Human Heritage Church of St. Frank Borgia, late baroque

A wonderful location for a conference. All photos are mine.

Columns are from Trapani. The first group of they were lost in a shipwerk, these are the second group from that town.

Wow, it's crazy to think that people have chosen to live and build so many beautiful things just below a massive active volcano!

Sorry, I didn't mean to offend. On the contrary, I wanted to stress that the people who have established Catania were confident enough to defy the mighty Etna and build a lively and beautiful place right next to it.

I will be visiting Sicily in a couple of weeks and hope to see all that in loco soon!
