It is said that Aci Bonaccorsi and the other Aci drew their origin from "Xiphonia", a mysterious Greek city which has now completely disappeared.
The poets Virgil and Ovid gave rise to the myth of the foundation of the love story of a nymph named Galatea and a shepherd called Acis, and the Cyclops Polyphemus.
In Roman times there was a city called "Akis", which participated in the Punic Wars.
The history of the medieval "Jachium" and then Arabah "Al-Yag" coincides closely with that of Aci Castello from which you can infer much of the historical events and to which reference is made.
Of this period is the foundation of Valverde Sanctuary.
The story of Aci Bonaccorsi sarà shared virtually until the seventeenth century with the other hamlets of Aci of the territory to which they can refer.
Certainly initially established as a town since 1400 formed by the districts of Liuna, and Battiati Pauloti and then later identified Bonaccorsi, referring to Bonaccorso family.
Under Spanish rule, in the seventeenth century, the remarkable economic development of New Aquilia (Acireale) caused conflicts and rivalries with other hamlets demanding self-government.
There will be the separation of Aci farmhouses.
They were born: Aci Bonaccorsi, Aci Castello (also including Aci Trezza), San Filippo and Aci Aci Sant'Antonio (also including Valverde, Aci Aci Catena and Saint Lucia).
