Quiet and discreet, theriver reaches a length of over 113 km, it is the main river of Sicily both for its hydrographicaland anthropic size. In his path does not cross any major center, but it touch the countries ofBronte, Adrano, Paternò, Motta / Misterbianco to flow at the end in the bay of Catania. Theriver represents a line of conjunction both morphological and socio-cultural of this territory,but over all it rapresents the cohesion of all different landscapes of this area. Along the wayhe meets different landscapes, sometimes finds space between the walls of black vulcanicrock, sometimes crawls on rough track of pebbles and red sand, othertimes creeps inside ofthick green areas rich of vegetation, in this continuous changement of level, of scenes, ofcolors and smell, are two the elements that never change, that are always the same at everyseason and at every hour of the day and the night, and that represent the aim and the powerof this landscape: the Etna and Simeto.
