It is characterized by an accented two-tone design made from black lava stone and the white stone of Lentini, was originally enriched from the two towers semiconici on the sides and a pair of egide, with the arms of bourbon, and decorations that have been lost in the course of the NINETEENTH and of the TWENTIETH century. They remain today the old prints and the symbols that represent the city: S. Agata e la Fenice, to indicate the motto of the city: Meior de cinere surgo (I rise more beautiful from the ashes) that represents the pride of the people of catania, who, tirelessly, to rebuild the city after all the destruction that in the seicoli has destroyed.
