Tiziana Campisi ᛫ City Organizer

Enna is an Italian town of 27 011 inhabitants, capital of the free homonymous municipal consortium in Sicily.

Called Castrogiovanni until 1927, the year in which it took the ancient name of Enna. Known for being the highest provincial capital in Europe, due to the altitude of the inhabited center which stands at 931m at the Town Hall, it reaches 992m at the Castello di Lombardia.

The city has been defined Urbs Inexpugnabilis, from the Romans for its impregnability, Navel of Sicily, for its geographical centrality with respect to the Island, and Belvedere of Sicily, for the panoramic views that from here you have in the various directions.

In the previous three millennia it was an almost impregnable stronghold of Sicans, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Swabians and Aragonese. Enna preserves the castle, the Rocca di Cerere and the Duomo. It is the headquarters of the Kore University.
