Aci Trezza is a town in Sicily, a frazione of the comune of Aci Castello, c. 10 km north of Catania, with a population of around 5,000 people.
Located on the coast of the Ionian Sea, the village has a long history of maritime activity. Aci Trezza is a popular spot for Italian vacationers in the summer. The patron Saint of the town is St. John the Baptist. The Festa of San Giovanni is celebrated each year during the last week of June 24 in his honour.
In 1948 Luchino Visconti filmed his neo-realist film La terra trema, based on Giovanni Verga's novel I Malavoglia, in Aci Trezza. The entire cast were local inhabitants rather than professional actors. A small museum dedicated to the film can be found in the town, and is run by one of the cast members.
