Syracuse (Sicilian: Sarausa) is a historic city, the capital of the province of Syracuse. The city is notable for its rich Greek history, culture, amphitheatres, architecture, and as the birthplace of the preeminent mathematician and engineer Archimedes. This 2,700-year-old city played a key role in ancient times, when it was one of the major powers of the Mediterranean world. Siracu za, capitala provinciei omonime, este unul dintre cele mai importante oraşe din istoria şi cultura greacă şi este de asemenea locul naşterii lui Arhimede, cel mai mare matematician al antichit ăţ ii . Acest oraş cu o istorie de peste 2700 de ani a fost odinioară una dintre cetăţile cele mai puternice ale Mediteranei. The symbol of Trinacria, present in the flag of Sicily.

The coast of ancient Ortigia has two ports, Porto Grande ("Large") and Porto Piccolo ("Small").

Slide 8:

Ortygia (Italian: Ortigia) is a little island and it is the historical centre of the city of Syracuse. The island, also known as Città Vecchia (Old City), contains many historical landmarks. The Homeric Hymn to Delian Apollo has it that the goddess Leto stopped at Ortygia to give birth to Artemis, the firstborn of her twins. Artemis then helped Leto across the sea to the island of Delos, where Leto gave birth to Apollo. Piazza Marina

Slide 9:

Other ancient sources state that the twins were born in the same place—which was either Delos or Ortygia— but Ortygia was an old name of Delos. Further, there were perhaps a half-dozen other places called Ortygia, so that the identification is uncertain.

The island of Ortigia is the historical heart of Siracusa. Occupying an important place in the hearts of Syracusans, the Fonte Aretusa (on the western shore) is a fresh-water spring whose history goes back to the earliest Greek colonists. Ortigia este leag ă nul , inima istorică a Siracuzei. Fântâna Aretusa, aflată pe malul de apus, ocupă un loc important în inima locuitorilor, povestea izvorului său cu apă limpede ducând înapoi la primii colonişti veniţi din Grecia.

Slide 12:

According to mythology, the spring is an embodiment of the nymph Arethusa, changed into a watercourse by her goddess Artemis/Diana in order to escape the attentions of unwanted suitor Alpheus (Alfeo). Conform mitologiei nimfa Aretusa a fost transformată de zeiţa Artemis (Diana) într-un izvor, ca s-o scape de urmăritorul său, z eul-râu Alpheus care s-a îndrăgostit nebunește de ea, dar ea a fugit în Sicilia . Alpheus și-a croit calea pe sub mare și și-a unit apele cu cele ale Aretusei.

Slide 17:

The papyrus you see growing in the Fonte Aretusa is not an exotic import from Egypt. The plant has been growing in Syracuse for thousands of years, along the banks of the Ciane River. The plant has a myriad of uses, the best known of which is the production of a medium to write or paint on - don't call it paper!

Slide 21:

The Castello Maniace is a citadel and castle in Syracuse, Sicily. It stands on a large promontory, where it was constructed between 1232 and 1240 by the Emperor Frederick II. It bears the name of George Maniakes, the Byzantine general who besieged and took the city in 1038.
