Hello Everyone. I currently live in Southern California and next year, I'm preparing to go to Ripa Teatina, Chieti, the home of my Grandmother's family and would like to start conversing with someone living there. Is there anyone out there who would like to connect, please?
Avezzano is a city in the Abruzzo region, in the province of L'Aquila. It is the main commercial, industrial and agricultural centre of the Marsica area, with important high-tech industries and a large Telespazio satellite farm. The city have been completely destroyed by the earthquake of 1915 and has no monuments of particular interest as do other locations in the region of Abruzzo. However, you can see some important remains of its ancient history. The Orsini-Colonna castle, the Cathedral of San Bartolomeo and the Sanctuary of the Madonna di Pietraquaria are worth noting.
