I am bothering your soul with this exhibition story, ahahah I’m sorry but it’s something that it’s worth
Anyway this time it is just a reason to show a couple of pictures
The “ceiling” of the high altar (I can’t remember which is the actual name of that architectonic part of a Church)
A painting on the right wall of the Church (looking toward the high altar).
Tomorrow I’ll see if someone can tell me something more.
As you probably figured out the exhibition setting is the San Placido Church that can be found in San Placido Square in Catania.
According to the information found on the web it was first built in the early XV century.
A great quake in the late XVII century destroyed most of Catania structures and this Church was among the destroyed buildings, but in the early XVIII century they built it back.
I won’t go further for the moment because at the moment I really don’t have “reliable” sources to say more about this church.
Anyway, it is worth visiting. You don’t need to have studied art and history to appreciate its beauty.

Picture taken in March 2006 while walking along “Via Etnea” (the basilica is placed after the building on the left of this picture).
This is what Catania people call “the church/basilica of the Collegiata”, destroyed in the earthquake of 1693 that killed 2/3 of Catania people.
The basilica has been rebuilt later as much of the other things you can find in this little city… I might say other thing about this, but I’m too tired and lazy to translate this wikipedia page.
This is one of those pictures I want to go to take again now, and who knows, even get inside the church and take some other pictures…
There is a metro station pretty close to this area, and another metro station is not too far from my apartment. It solve car and parking car problems, and it’s pretty cheap if you consider petrol and parking cost, temptation is high! ;D
I’m being pretty busy in these days, going to be more in the next ones, therefore I’ll surf trough the endless archive. Pray for me, need help for several reason, nothing of terrible but… uff!
