Description

Catania is an Italian city on the east coast of Sicily facing the Ionian Sea, between Messina and Syracuse. Catania is known for its seismic history, having been destroyed by a catastrophic earthquake in 1169, another in 1693, and several volcanic eruptions from the neighbouring Mount Etna volcano, the most violent of which was in 1669. In the 14th century and the Renaissance, Catania was one of Italy’s most important and flourishing cultural, artistic, and political centres, having witnessed the opening in 1434 of the first university in Sicily.
