Catania, on the east coast of the island of Sicily, has had a long and sometimes turbulent history, often suffering at the hands of Mother Nature. It was destroyed by a huge earthquake in 1169 and again in 1693. Volcanic eruptions from nearby Mount Etna have also led to problems, although the most violent of these was long ago in 1669. Today, it is one of the key economic centres of the island, with its investment in technological industries earning it the nickname 'the European Silicon valley'. The traditional petrochemical and sulphur extracting industries are still thriving, and alongside these is a booming tourist sector, with visitors from all over Europe drawn by attractions such as the Parco Zoo di Sicilia and Etnaland, a theme park that contains fairground rides, an aquatic centre and a zoo.
