Artist's Description

Basilica della Collegiata, Catania, Sicily, Italy

The Basilica della Collegiata (also known as Santa Maria dell’Elemosina) is a church in Catania, Sicily, southern Italy. Finished in 1768, it is an example of Sicilian Baroque.
The church was built in the early 18th century, after the earthquake of 1693 that had destroyed most of the city.
The design of the church is attributed to Angelo Italia, who changed the orientation of the previous edifice destroyed by the earthquake, in order to have it facing the new via Uzeda (current Etnea Street) according to the rebuilding plan of the city. The façade, designed by Stefano Ittar, is one of the most notable examples of Sicilian Baroque in Catania.
