Piazza Università

Piazza dell’ Università is located in Catania, along Via Etnea, less than one hundred metres far from Piazza Duomo and is one of the most scenic squares of Catania historic centre.

It dates back at least to 1696 when, on the west side, Palazzo dell’ Università was built after the destructions of the 1693 earthquake. The building project was made by several architects – Francesco and Antonino Battaglia and Giovanni Battista Vaccarini are but a few.
