Photographer's Note

On the highest part of the peninsula of Ortigia, Piazza del Dumo was planned. Its half ellipse contains the most representative buildings of Syracuse: Il Duomo, the Church of Santa Lucía alla Badia, the Senatoriale Palace (Town Hall), the Beneventano del Bosco Palace, the palace of the former archaeological museum, the archiepiscopal palace with its Algonian library .

This urban complex shows the flow of the social and religious life of Syracuse still pulsating and from which we can get soaked if with a little patience we observe people walking in the shade of the terraces of the Piazza.

Sobre la parte más elevada de la península de la Ortigia se planificó la Piazza del Dumo. Su media elipse contiene los edificios más representativos de Siracusa: Il Duomo, la Iglesia de Santa Lucía alla Badia, el Palacio Senatoriale (Ayuntamiento), el Palacio Beneventano del Bosco, el palacio del ex-museo arqueológico, el palacio arzobispal con su biblioteca Algoniana.

Este complejo urbanístico muestra el discurrir de la vida social y religiosa de Siracusa aún palpitante y de la cual podremos empaparnos si con un poco de paciencia observamos a la gente pasear a la sombra de las terrazas de la Piazza.
