Acitrezza is a small comune (municipality) in Catania province which was declared to be autonomous around 1800. Its history derives from the time of the Spanish domination of Sicily. In the 1600's, its name was "Terra di Trezza", founded by Prince Stefano of the Riggio dynasty who constructed a church dedicated to St. Joseph and a small jetty. In the 1900's, fishing became the main source of revenue for the people to such an extent that Acitrezza registered the highest development of fish commerce. The town's particular attraction is the Faraglioni at the front of the town, noted for their historical and scientific importance. They are monolithic rocks, rising up from the sea's surface, singly or in groups. Moreover, the invention of ice cream is partly attributed to Acitrezza.
