Does anyone know if English appliances eg fridge freezer, washing machine, power drill will work in Abruzzo? We have heard that the power supply in some areas wil not handle it.



The only problem will be the capacity of the power supply.  In Italy, this is often only 3kW  [equivalent to 13 amps] so all you have to do is make sure you don't have more than 3000 Watts running at any time.  In practice, this means;-

  • ditch the electric kettle  [it takes almost all of the 3kW]
  • don't run your electric oven at the same time  as the washing machine etc

Its easy peasy really  - or you can  pay extra for a stronger supply - but that's not very 'Green' is it?   .
