Librizzi (Sicilian: Libbrizzi) is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Messina in the Italian region Sicily, located about 140 kilometres (87 mi) east of Palermo and about 50 kilometres (31 mi) west of Messina, on a hill between the Timeto and Librizzi streams.

Its origins date most likely to the 12th century, when a community rose around the Brichinnai castle.
