Misterbianco borders the following municipalities: Camporotondo Etneo, Catania, Motta Sant'Anastasia, San Pietro Clarenza.

History

The settlement's name derives from a former local monastery, whose monks, likely Dominicans, wore a white dress (in Latin, Monasterium Album, "White Monastery"). However, both the monastery and the settlement were destroyed by an eruption of the nearby Mount Etna in 1669. A new borough was therefore built in the former contrada (quarter) of Milicia.Until the mid-19th century Misterbianco was a small rural settlement. However, after a large industrial complex was built in the area, its population grew substantially, up to 18,836 in 1971 and 40,785 in 1991. The town continues to grow in size due to people moving here from the increasingly costly quarter of Catania city.
