Acireale – Carnevals and Pizza

Acireale famous for its Carnevals and Pizza. With 50000 inhabitants you reach this city just bit north of Catania, 15 minutes drive. It is the city center that is interesting, the outskirts are not very nice.

Parked by Piazza Duomo and walked: – Piazza Duomo – Piazza Leonardo Vigo – Snack from Caffe Cipriani – Back to Piazza Duomo – Corso Savoia and took an alley on the left side – Porta Cusmana – Via Paolo Vasta to Piazza Europa – Final stop Villa Belvedere and then walk back to the car.

It’s Carnival time!

This year we attended the Carnival party at Palazzo Manganelli in Catania. Nice music, pasta buffet and an ok bar.

Palace is built by the Tornabene family in 1400, but then have had several owners. The Palace was restored and enlarged in the second half of the nineteenth century with the addition of the second floor (where today is a great hotel), the interiors were richly redecorated in the style of the time according to new architectural concepts, where worked the famous painter Giuseppe Sciuti, all work ordered by Princess Angela Patern? of Manganelli Torresi. Currently the palace has a fa?ade in pure late baroque/ rococo style and with a hanging garden. Very famous in Catania, extended on two levels joined by a romantic staircase with two fountains and a nymphaeum. It is currently owned by descendants Borghese princes, renting it for events.

As usual the party got interrupted by the police sometime after midnight due to administrative irregularities, but that is typical in Sicily so…

F?r tillf?llet har slottet en fasad i ren senbarock/ rokoko stil och med en h?ngande tr?dg?rd. Mycket k?nd i Catania, byggd p? tv? niv?er f?renade med en romantisk trappa med tv? font?ner och en nymphaeum. Det ?gs f?r n?rvarande av ?ttlingar, Borghese prinsar, som hyr det f?r event.

Som vanligt avbr?ts festen av polisen n?gon g?ng efter midnatt p? grund av administrativa oegentligheter, men det ?r typiskt p? Sicilien, s? …
