Located on the waters of the homonymous Strait, this city with millenary origins will amaze you with its rich cultural heritage and splendid architectures, ranging from the Renaissance to the Baroque, from the Neoclassical to the Art Deco.

The streets of Messina tell ancient stories, which manifest themselves in historical monuments such as the magnificent Duomo and its famous Astronomical Clock, as well as in the spectacular sea views you can enjoy from the Belvedere of the evocative Tempio di Cristo Re.

But Messina, like Sicily, is not only a feast for the eyes but also for the palate. The local cuisine is a true celebration of authentic flavors and fresh ingredients, coming from a generous land kissed by the sun.

Panyllo's success: Arancini as Sicilian pride worldwide

Panyllo, Megarancino

Since 2010, Panyllo bakery has been offering its typical baked delights and more. Among the successes achieved during this period of activity, a memorable chapter is represented by the Guinness World Record for the largest Arancino in the world, obtained on September 30, 2023, in a memorable event held in the setting of Piazza Duomo in Messina, amidst excitement and pride of the local community.

This Megarancino reached a weight of 56.2 kg, with a height of 60 cm and a diameter of 55, far exceeding the previous record of 32.7 kg.

The spectacular cooking in the vast pot, followed by the weighing and verification of the ingredients once the Arancino was opened, were the most significant moments of this unforgettable experience, which, on one hand, put the Panyllo bakery under the international spotlight, and on the other hand, emphasized the importance of Arancini in Sicilian culinary tradition.

In the Panyllo menu, among other things, you can find not only the most classic Arancini with ragù, evoking the authentic flavors of Sicily, but also more innovative options, such as Arancini with butter, béchamel, and cooked ham, adding a note of creativity to the traditional recipe.

The extraordinary Guinness result achieved by the Megarancino is much more than just a record: it's a celebration of the passion and dedication that the Panyllo bakery puts into its daily production. Both Arancini and all other products, large or small, carry with them the legacy of a long culinary tradition and the commitment to keep this heritage alive for future generations.
