Abruzzo

Abruzzo (general)

Photo to come

Abruzzo, in the center of Italy northeast of Rome, is a region of "mare e montagna," sea and mountains. It is a bit "forgotten" in the sense of tourism, but with its long history, beautiful scenery, ancient towns and churches, and delicious cuisine, it deserves to be better known. Come visit!

These are the general photos. For specific cities and towns, see the list below.

Avezzano (Provincia di L'Aquila)

Photo to come

Situated in La Marsica, Abruzzo, on the northwest corner of the Piana del Fucino (Fucino Plain, pronounced "FOO-chee-noh"), Avezzano was leveled to the ground by an earthquake in January 1915. Now it's a modern city but built on a human scale and surrounded by a circle of breathtaking mountains. Come visit:

Avezzano Market

Photo to come

Every Saturday morning there's a big outdoor market in Avezzano where you can buy everything from lingerie to lawn mowers. In the spring when the trees are green, it's delightful to walk through the market, bask in the sunshine, meet and greet friends, and pick up a few bargains for your home or yourself. Shoes, anyone? Come and have a look at the wares!

After 90 years without a municipal theater (the last one was destroyed in the earthquake of January 1915), the new Teatro dei Marsi was inaugurated at a gala symphony event. Raffaello Di Domenico, president of Italia Nostra, Avezzano Section, and Carmine Melandra, vice president, present the Italia Nostra Award to Mayor Antonio Floris for his contribution in bringing the theater to completion.

Raffaello Di Domenico, il presidente di Italia Nostra, Sezione di Avezzano, e Carmine Melandra, il vice presidente, consegnano il Premio Italia Nostra al sindaco di Avezzano, Antonio Floris.

Montecassino

No longer the burned-out blackened hulk so often seen in World War II documentaries, Montecassino is well worth a visit to see its marble courtyard, basilica, and museum. Have a look at the photos, and you'll see why!


Passo Rolle and San Martino di Castrozza
(Dolomites)

Restaurants in Avezzano

Amarcord

Via Sante Marie, 92

A bit out of the way but worth the effort to get there. Specialties pizza (not American style! thin and light the true Italian way, with the emphasis on the topping rather than the crust), foccaccia, grills. A number of the special pizzas are named after Fellini films, hence the name of the restaurant. On a diet? Try one of the giant mixed salads, fresh, crunchy, and healthful. The average price of a three-course meal, including wine, mineral water, coffee, service, and tax, is 14 euros. Closed Tuesday.
