Catania Summer Fest 2019 locations
As you may have noticed, the Catania Summer Fest 2019 will take place in the most evocative places of the city: the Ursino Castle and the Bellini Garden are just two examples.
The Ursino Castle, located in the historic center, in Piazza Federico di Svevia (where our office is also located!) was built by Frederick II of Swabia in the thirteenth century, today is home to the civic museum, and you can visit it every day from 9 am to 19 pm.
The Bellini Garden, called Villa Bellini or “A Villa” by the people of Catania, has its main entrance in Via Etnea and dates back to the eighteenth century. It belonged to Prince Ignazio Paternò Castello di Biscari, but on the 29th of September 1854 it was purchased by the municipality of Catania; on 6 January 1883 the “Villa” was inaugurated and became a regular destination for the families of Catania who went there for a walk or for children to play.
