The succession of various civilizations have enriched the Sicily of urban settlements, monuments and ancient monuments that make the region one of the privileged places where history can be relived through the pictures of the signs that time has passed and scratched up today.

For the triangular shape, Sicily in ancient times was called Triquetra or Trinacria. Because of its location, the region and its surrounding islands are affected by intense volcanic activity.

The west and south west of Etna is bordered by the river Simeto. Etna is currently about 3330 meters high, stretches across a perimeter of about 210 km and an area of 1600 square kilometres.
