The Movies Set in Acireale, Sicily, Italy | Urban | Em.Pi.Ju.



GENERAL INFORMATION
Acireale, simply called Jaci by the Sicilians, is a beautiful town in Catania Province, Sicily.
This town was built on a plateau called Timpa, whose 161-meter elevation makes Acireale almost overhanging the Ionian Sea.
The city's name comes from Greek mythology. According to myth, in the area where today is located Acireale lived Acis, a handsome shepherd, whom Galatea, one of 50 sea nymphs, fell in love with.
The problem was that also the cyclops Polyphemus was folly in love with the nymph. In the end, the jealous Polyphemus crushed Acis, his rival in love, under the weight of a boulder. But then, Galatea turned Acis’s blood into the Sicilian river Acis, of which he became the spirit. And near the river was built then Aci.

Over time, my city has been chosen as the set for several films, which are now very renowned in Italy and outside Italy.

To name a few:

- Un bellissimo novembre, by Mauro Bolognini (1968);
- Malizia, by Salvatore Samperi (1972);
- La seduzione, by Fernando Di Leo (1973);
- L'arbitro, by Luigi Filippo D'Amico (1974);
- Godfather — Part II, by Francis Ford Coppola (1974);
- Il fidanzamento, by Giovanni Grimaldi by (1975);
- La perdizione, by Luigi Grosso del (1986);

My name is Francesca, and I’m 17-year-old languages student from Acireale, Sicily. Traveling and discovering new cultures and food are among my favorite passions. During my free time, I love watching TV series, reading books, and hanging out with my friends.
Acireale is a quite big town in Sicily and is located very close to the sea —it takes only a 10-minute walk from downtown to the sea.   
Hope you choose to visit Acireale and enjoy my little world!!!
