Messina - the Sicilian and Mediterranean Pearl...
Messina is the most picturesque and one of the chief city on the Sicily island in the heart of the Mediterranean see. Messina is the gate to the Calabria region - the southwestern part of the continental Italy also the Europe. It was founded as Zancle in 724 BC by the inhabitants the Siculi, who were associated with the Greeks. Greek legend placed the six-headed monster Scylla (Scilla) and the whirlpool Charybdis (Cariddi) in the Straits of Messina, so these names, in modern times, have been used in many events. For instance, the first train ferries of 1896 were named after them.
In 493 BC the city was taken by Anaxilas, and renamed after his native city of Messene in the Peloponnese. It took part in the wars against Athens, and was destroyed in 396 BC by the Carthaginians. The city and its surrounds were rebuilt in 288 BC, and aligned itself with Rome, Augustus establishing a Roman colony in 36 BC. In AD 843 Messina was taken by the Saracens, and then fell to the Normans in 1060 who built the cathedral in 1092.
The city was independent for 400 years until 1678, when it was sacked by the Spaniards. Between 1740 and 1908 Messina suffered a series of disasters from plague, earthquake, cholera and bombardment by a Neapolitan fleet, ending with a further major earthquake in 1908 which harmed more then 100,000 lives.
It was not until the 1930s under Mussolini that Messina made real progress towards the complete recovery. Air-raids in 1943 in the World War II killed another 5,000 inhabitants, and reduced much of the reconstruction to rubble. Nowadays, Messina and its community inlay worthy efforts to enable many European tourists and visitors of Sicily to have a fan and pleasant staying for the vacations, excursions, recreations, sport preparations, etc...
