Pachino is a town and comune in the Province of Syracuse, Sicily. The name derives from the Roman word bacchus which is the Greek and Roman god of wine, and the word ino, which means wine in the Latin language; originally the town was named Bachino which eventually was changed to Pachino when, in Sicily, Italian became the official spoken and written language.It was founded in 1760 by the nobles Starraba, princes of Giardinelli and marquises of Rudini, on the hill of the feud of Scibini, where a preexisting tower was built in 1494. Pachino was invaded in 1943 by the British 8th Army as a part of the allied invasion of Sicily.
