    The House of the famous Sicilian writer is located near the Cathedral of Sant'Agata, in the street in front of the teatro romano, via Sant'Anna. I didn't think you could visit. Instead on the second floor of this building in the heart of Catania, is the apartment where he was born and died Giovanni Verga. Excellent explanation of the audio-guides that are given at the entrance: really detailed and engaging! A place to visit!!

    I enjoyed it because there was a crazy hot since I visited in August. Aside from the library there was little else of his personal items or more. Could be the home of another writer and you wouldn't notice.

    The birthplace of the great Giovanni Verga is in an alley who insist on calling it away and if I know the name you can reach it. No indication in the nearby piazza Duomo or near. Housed in a dilapidated complex, once inside you change log. Well appointed home, noble but understated, rich in memories and original writings as well as a large library. Catania should do more to rod. Visit absolutely recommended. Roberto & Luisa reggio calabria

  • Although not a milestone in Catania, expresses well the style that Rod has maintained throughout his life.
