The several archaeologies, visible in the center of Catania, seem like irrelevant objects, fenced in scattered holes across the town without any common idea.

Abstract

The several archaeologies, visible in the center of Catania, seem like irrelevant objects, fenced in scattered holes across the town without any common idea. Nevertheless, these treasures are even more valuable for belonging to an extraordinary topographical context which change not only for the physical overlapping of the eras, like it usually happens, but also for the overturning of the spatiotemporal order of the town caused by the action of Etna (it is common to find in Catania the ancient level upper than the current one).
