Linguaglossa (Sicilian: Linguarossa) is a town and comune in the Province of Catania in Italy, located on the northern side of Mount Etna where there is also a ski resort with view on the Ionian sea. It was founded on a lava stream in 1566. The name 'Lingua Glossa' literally means 'Tongue Tongue', with 'Lingua' being the Italian word for 'Tongue', and 'Glossa' being the ancient Greek word for 'Tongue'.
