It's a kind of radicchio - a red lettuce, Radicchio comes in a "head" form like iceberg lettuce. Trevisano is an oblong radicchio

Trevisano raddicchio has a bitter flavor, so if you are trying to substitute it with another variety, perhaps an endive would work.

Of course in Italy a bitter flavor is appreciated greatly. Not so much in N. America.

Nothing wrong at all with a bitter flavor in my book! Gives a great excuse for pairing with bacon or other smoked pork, as if I would need an excuse for that! But if a recipe calls for a bitter green and the cook doesn't know and subs a bland green, the end result would lack something.
