Trinacria is the symbol of Sicily, which appears on the island's flag and you can find in many handicrafts and souvenirs. It consists of the head of the Gorgone, with snake hair intertwined with ears of wheat, and three folded legs that refer to the ancient name of Sicily: it was called Trinacria due to the three promontories that mark the ends of the island.
These famous desserts, made up of a crispy dough wrap filled with ricotta cream, have an uncertain origin. The strong taste ingredients remind Arab culinary tradition, but it is said that the cloistered nuns of Caltanissetta invented them. In any case, if you visit Catania you have to taste cannoli!
If you want to buy local products in Catania, we recommend you take a walk in the long and beautiful Via Etnea, where you will find many typical shops, or in the streets that branch off from it.
Since Catania is a tourist place, it is also easy to find typical food products in any supermarket.
Remember that, in each port, you have a Guest Information Center where you can ask the staff for any advice related to which brands offers a better product.
