Messina Astronomical clock

Interesting
Alongside the Dome, there is a 60m high bell tower containing an astronomical clock, made in Strasbourg in 1933, with moving figures showing the time, the days and the main periods of life. At midday, all of the figures move to accompany the music of a crowing cockerel.
