Photographer's Note

ENGLISH: This is a scene from the beatiful baroque city of Catania. Originally settled by the Greeks (and named Katane) to mean "grater" or "flaying knife", it has had a tumultuous history with influences from the Arabs, the Greeks, the Romans, the Normans and even the Vandals. Lying at the foot of the volcano Mt Etna can be a blessing and a curse. The town was almost totally destroyed in 1693 by the earthquake and has been threatened many times by the eruptions of Etna.

I dedicate this photo to Maurizio (Mauro61). I'm glad you're back.

ITALIANO: Si tratta della bella citta Barocca di Catania. Intitolato "Katane" dai Greci, significa "gratta" o "coltello". La Catania ha avuto una storia tumultua, con influenze dei Greci, i Romani, i Normanni, gli Arabi e anche i Vandali. Situato di fronte l'Etna e' un beata e un maledizione.

Dedico questa foto a Maurizio (Mauro61). Bentornato amico.
