  • Thank you Johndemi.
    Authorsream can’t respect the type and timing of animation and also the movements ’very slow’ and so never the timing of music, watching there, is like in pps. I didn’t found an option ’Respect The Timing’ and I have seen that they do not respect my timing preference. Like The display time or the minimum gap between images. Because the timing between slides is stretched out considerably the music disappeared towards the end.
    But..... better with author stream than without....
    If someone want to see this in the form I created, I mentioned always: YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT HERE.....
    Sorry, is all I can do....

Catania Piazza Duomo

  1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-1231152-catania5/
  2. 2. Island of the Sun Catania was one of the main centers of the Sicilian Vespers revolt (1282) against the House of Anjou, and was the seat of the incoronation of the new Aragonese king of Sicily, Peter I. In the early 15th century, Sicily was turned into a province of the larger Kingdom of Aragon and with the unification of Castile and Aragon (early 16th century) Sicily became part of the Spanish Empire. Catania was one of the vanguards of the movement for the Sicilian autonomy in the early 19th century. In 1434 King Alfonso V founded here the Siciliae Studium Generale, the oldest university in the island. Catania a fost unul dintre focarele principale ale revoltei „Vecerniile Siciliene” ( cu urmări notabile asupra ansamblului situaţiei politice a întregii creştinătăţi medievale ) împotriva Casei de Anjou şi a fost locul încoronării noului rege aragonez al Siciliei, Petru I. La începutul secolului XV Sicilia a devenit provincie a Regatului de Aragon iar la începutul secolului XVI, după unificarea Castiliei cu Aragonul, a făcut parte din Imperiul Spaniol. Catania a fost de asemenea în avangarda mişcării pentru autonomia Siciliei la începutul secolului XIX. În anul 1434 regele spaniol Alfonso V Magnanimul a fondat la Catania prima universitate din Sicilia. There is a little Italian proverb that said: " Palermo grandeza, Catania belleza." This proverb purported that Palermo have the larger City, but Catania the beauty of Sicily.

  4. 4. Piazza Duomo is the heart of Catania, with the city’s symbol monument: the fountain with the Elephant. The city’s cathedral with the Chapel of Sant’Agata looks out onto this square, where precious treasures are kept. There is also Palazzo degli Elefanti which is the City Hall. One of Catania’s most interesting roads starts from Piazza Duomo - Via Etnea, where there are splendid Baroque buildings with lava dust façades and a multitude of shops and confectioners. Pia ţa Domului este inima Cataniei şi aici se înalţă monumentul care simbolizează oraşul: Fântâna Elefantului. Din piaţă putem admira faţada Domului plin de comori unde se află mormântul „Lebedei Cataniei”, Vincenzo Bellini, ca şi faţada Palatului Elefanţilor care adăposteşte Primăria oraşului, precum şi cea a Palatul Episcopal, eternul rival pentru putere.
  5. 7. The Elephant, symbol of the city of Catania since 12 39 , is located in the center of Piazza Duomo. This is a lava-stone statue that dates back to the Roman era, mounted on a more modern structure by Vaccarini from the eighteenth century. Legend goes that this animal became the city symbol because in ancient times pigmy elephants lived in this place, that protected the city’s inhabitants by chasing away fierce animals. Elefantul, simbolul oficial al oraşului Catania încă din anul 1239, face parte din fântâna Elefantului din Piaţa Domului, realizată de Giovanni Battista Vaccarini în anul 1736. Conform ipotezei geografului arab Idrisi care, în perioada 1145-1154, a descris Sicilia la ordinul regelui normand Roger, elefantul din Catania este o statuie magică, un adevărat talisman, construit în perioada bizantină din magmă vulcanică (lavă ) pentru a proteja Catania împotriva pericolelor reprezentate de Etna. The symbol of the city is u Liotru , or the Fontana dell'Elefante ,
