The church of San Nicolò l'Arena in Catania is a building of Catholic worship, located in Piazza Dante. Measuring 105 meters in length and 48 meters in width, the naves and about 71 meters in the transept, with a maximum height of about 66 meters to the dome, is the largest in Sicily. Its construction dates back to the eruption of Etna in 1669 and replaces an older Renaissance temple. The references to the Vatican basilica are well recognizable: in the pillars supporting the naves with the Corinthian pilasters and plastically exposed cornices
