The Palazzo Platamone in Catania, also known as Palazzo della Cultura, is a valuable example of late medieval and Renaissance architecture and owes its name to the Platamone family, one of the most illustrious families of Catania in the fifteenth century.
During the reconstruction of the Monastery of San Placido, following the earthquake of 1693, the oldest remains of Palazzo Platamone, donated to the religious at the time, were annexed to the monastery.
Today it does not remain than a loggia, surmounted by a balcony, kept in the courtyard of the Monastery.
Today the building is a cultural center and hosts concerts and exhibitions.
