origin of Acitrezza, currently fraction of
Acicastello, goes back iwhen in the 1672
Stefano of the Riggio prince of the house of Campo
Fiorito acquired the territory. In 1600 in fact, it
was a zone nearly completely deserted where the
inhabitants of the ancient Acireale
worked linen and hemp to interlace them.
Perhaps from this fact derives the name “Trezza”, even if moltiple are the hypotheses on the origin of its name. Today all know Acitrezza, not only for the beauty of its landscapes, but also because the catanese writer Giovanni Verga has made it protagonist of its novel, “the Malavoglia”, describing the life of the fishermen and their families.
