Italy facts & history in brief

Messina
Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Messina with a population of about 260,000 is the third largest city on the island of Sicily, Italy and the capital of the province of Messina.
It is located at 3811'24?N, 1533'0?E, near the North-East corner of Sicily, at the Strait of Messina.

History Founded by Greek colonists in the 8th century BC, Messina was originally called Zancle (scythe) because of the shape of its natural harbour.
(The stairs leading to the harbour are to this day called 'Scaletta Zanclea'.)
In the early 5th century, Anaxilas of Rhegium renamed it Messene in honour of the Greek city Messene.

During 1978, Sarolta, my daughter and I had a fairly extensive look around in Italy, many of it's cities, architectural, monumental, artistic and natural treasures, including Messina.

We did enjoy our Messina and the friendly Messinians.


In 2006 Hui Chin and I spent a good couple of days in Messina, almost looking every little cranny to experience Messina, down at street level and getting to know its sights and people.
