A bichromatic city like the keyboard of a piano, in which white marble stands out on the lava stone facades of churches and palaces, and on which looms the black mass of Etna, often whitewashed with snow.

Catania is an ancient port city on the east coast of Sicily. It is located at the foot of Etna ( the highest volcano in Europe), an active volcano with paths that reach up to its summit. The large central square of the city, Piazza del Duomo, is characterized by the picturesque statue of the Elephant Fountain and the Cathedral, richly decorated.
