Liotru is the name in Catenese dialect of the elephant, the symbol of the city of Catania, with an Egyptian obelisk on it, to which Vaccarini added his eyes in white stone and his tusks then hoisted it on the monumental fountain with his trunk facing Sant’Agata.
According to the Arab geographer Idrisi, who arrived in Sicily in the twelfth century, the ancient inhabitants of Catania considered the elephant a symbol of protection against the eruptions of Etna and the original statue was built during the Carthaginian domination. According to ancient legends, he chased away wild animals during the foundation of the ancient ‘Katane’.
In this way we want to turn the usual walk into an opportunity for participants to do physical activity, get to know the city and have fun together, and above all to make a new experience with your trusted friend, sharing this experience with others.
