Katane a photographic tale about the city and the volcano, Catania and Etna in Sicily.
The Sicilian word katane means "grater, flaying knife, skinning place" or
a "crude tool apt to pare". Other translations of the name are "harsh lands", "uneven ground", "sharp stones", or "rugged or rough soil".
The latter etymologies are easily justifiable since, for many centuries following
an eruption of the Etna volcano, the city of Catania has always been rebuilt within its, often heavily polluted, black-lava landscape.
