‘a Nivarata, the new Festival of Sicilian granita

Are you crazy about Sicilian granita? Are you any close to the town of Acireale in the province of Catania? 

Well… if the answer to those questions is YES than don’t waste any time and go directly there because from today until the 16th of june is taking place the second edition of the brand new Festival of Sicilian granita called in dialect “a nivarata” a word that means a snow fall, because of the consistency of the granita (shaved ice) which is similar to snow and which was initially, in ancient times, made with snow.

There you can see Sicilian experts preparing marvellous granite and you can taste the new flavors as well as the traditional ones: lemon, almonds, pistaches, basil, cinnamon, orange, mint, anisette and a lot more!!!

Here you can find a nice blog on Sicilian granita in Italian language 🙂

    Hi! I'm Hellen and this year I went to the Festival of Sicilian granita. Everything happens for a chance because I was spending my holidays at the seaside near Acireale and someone told me about this famous event. It was an interesting and funny experience I could taste many different granite falvors and my 5 years old son was really really happy! Thank you Sicily!!
