Lemon Granita... Spanish or Italian?

I was at a cooking class in Chicago last night where Lemon Granita was on the menu as a frozen dessert (I guess like sorbet consistency) and they said it was Italian. All over the Barcelona area you get Granitas in the Summer at every Bar and Gelato place and it is a drink. So what is Granita technically, is it Spanish or Italian, frozen dessert or slushy beverage?
