ficarazzi arancino 2015

Ficarazzi is a little hamlet of the municipality of Aci Castello, in the province of Catania. And from 11th to 13th September it will become the center of one of the most famous culinary tradition of Sicily. It’s in those days that the 2015 edition of the so-awaited Sagra dell’Arancino will be held.

The program of the 2015 edition of Sagra dell’Arancino in Ficarazzi:

  • 11th September: musical show and cabaret (start at 8.30 PM)
  • 12th September: “La Corridasss” – a talent show (start at 8.30 PM)
  • 13th September: musical show  (start at 8.30 PM)

And then, obviously, there will be them, the famous “arancini”. The Sagra di Ficarazzi will be the occasion to taste them in their native earth, prepared in numerous different ways but always following the ancient recipe: you can taste arancini of all kind in every angle of this little hamlet, from the classic ones to the elaborate ones.

To reach Ficarazzi starting from Catania you just have to take the state road 144 to north, following the road signs to Aci Castello. The trip is less than half a hour by car. Waiting for the night to come, you can discover Aci Castello.
