Name(s) in local language(s):
Provincia di Enna, Sicilia, Italia


This province was created in 1927 from the former Nicosia district of Catania province and the former Piazza Armerina district of Caltanissetta province. The town of Enna (known until 1926 as Castrogiovanni and part of the Piazza Armerina district) became the capital of the new province.

Therefore, in old literature the localities of this province are located in the Catania and Caltanissetta provinces. In particular, Enna is indicated as Castrogiovanni.
