Piazza Stesicoro is one of the main and popular squares of the Old Town beacuse its central location and its proximity to the typical market of “Fera o’ Luni“. Piazza Stesicoro takes its name from the Greek poet Stesichorus whose tomb was here in Roman times, it is crossed and divided in two parts by the main street of downtown, the via Etnea. The two sides of the square have different architectural styles. On East stands the monument dedicated to the composer Vincenzo Bellini created by the sculptor Giulio Monteverde in 1882. Behind the monument to Bellini, from late fifties, all existing buildings were demolished and was designed the current Corso Sicilia, where on either sides there are the main Catania financial buildings.
