Catania Guide

The Sicilian city of Catania is located on the east coast of the island and lies on the Ionian Sea between Messina and Syracuse. Known for its historical relationship with earthquakes, having previously been destroyed by an earthquake in 1169 and again in 1693, the city has also suffered from volcanic eruptions from nearby Mount Etna, the most violent being in 1669. The city is also home to the first university opened in Sicily in 1434, and in the 14th century and on into the Renaissance, Catania was one of Italy's most important centres for culture, the arts and politics.

The city's symbol is u Liotru, or the Fontana dell'Ellefante, which was assembled in 1736 by Giovanni Battista Vaccarini. The symbol shows an ancient lavic stone elephant topped by an Egyptian obelisk from Syene. The city has had a poor relationship with volcanos, having been buried by lava a total of 17 times in recorded history. In layers beneath the present day city are the Roman city that preceded it, and the Greek city before that.
