Catania

Sicily, Italy


The scent of the fresh lemons and oranges, originally from the Sicily region, and the harmonized landscape with the Volcano Etna and the sea, are the frame in which the pearl of Catania fits magnificently.

A city where the historical heritage is still strong with the most famous testimonials of baroque architecture in the whole South of Italy, and the characteristic maze of streets offer sides of pure art surrounding yourself with an unexpected charm.  The opera composer Vincenzo Bellini was born in Catania, and a museum exists at his birthplace. The Teatro Massimo “Vincenzo Bellini”, which opened in 1890, is named after the composer. The opera house presents a variety of operas through a season, which run from December to May, many of which are the work of Bellini. Giovanni Verga was born in Catania in 1840. He became the greatest writer of Verismo, an Italian literary movement akin to Naturalism. His novels portray life among the lower levels of Sicilan society, such as fishermen and stonemasons, and were written in a mixture of both literary language and local dialect.
