This is the roman amphitheatre. From the following page:

http://www.sicilyweb.com/english/catania/catania.htm

"Piazza Stesicoro – At the centre of the square lie the remains of a grand Roman amphitheatre that could accomodate over 15,000 spectators. Much of the structure unfortunately lies hidden below the square and the surrounding baroque buildings."

Thanks for the link, Guarracino.

It was obvious, of course, but I wasn't sure for I can't find any references at the time.

Roman Amphitheater in Catania

This is NOT a roman amphitheatre and this is NOT Piazza Stesicoro! This is a greek theatre (roman amphiteatre are elliptical not half circle) and is located in Vittorio Emanuele street. The amphitheatre, and Piazza Stesicoro, is at about 500m NNE from here, but you can see only a little part of it because the other is under the 1669 lava field.
