07 June / 09 July – Aci Trezza (CT)
30th Edition San Giovanni ad Acitrezza Swordfish Festival (CT) on 7, 8 and 9 June and 12, 13 and 14 July 2019. The traditional event takes place annually on the occasion of the solemn celebrations in honor of the Patron Saint Saint John the Baptist .
At the Scaggio di Alaggio three large grids are installed where good swordfish is cooked by expert cooks, fished in the previous days by the spadare trezzote. The fish is then expertly seasoned with oil, oregano, salt and fresh salad and accompanied by the inevitable glass of good white wine together with the homemade bread. Finally, in the wake of the great public success of past years, there is an exhibition and display of handicrafts and typical local products, which frame the splendid scenery of the Lungomare dei Ciclopi and the enchanting background of the navy with the Island Lachea and the stacks of the Cyclops.
