  • On Costa cruise we descended on Catania and the first thing view was just this fountain placed next to the central station. It is the classic hidden attraction that no one brings to visit. She represents Hades, God of the Underworld, who kidnaps Zeus' daughter Proserpina to induce her to marriage and force her to live with him underground. Hello from Roby and Lucy from St. Anastasia (Na)

  • The Preserpina Fountain also known as "Rape of Proserpina" is a work in which the main theme is the abduction of Proserpina by the god Hades who forces her to marry her and reign application possibilities in Underworld. I Honestly think that it is not much appreciated even though it is really beautiful as opera.

  • The fountain was built in 1904 as a result of the creation of the central station. Very beautiful to the eye. The details are unturned. Suggestive.
