Curiosity: The sicilian name "Arancino", which is translated as "little orange", derives from their shape and colour which, after cooking, is reminiscent of an orange. They have a conical shape representing the volcano Etna!
Ragalna is a nice town located on the south-west side of Etna, called "terrace of Etna", due to the vast panorama that extends from the Simeto Valley to the Gulf of Augusta, up to the city of Enna. There're a lot of interpretations about the origin of the name of Ragalna. The most reliable seems to be that the name has Arabic or late Latin origins, which dates back to the term "Recalena", which indicates a "locality situated in a stony area and characterized by a breath of wind".
