Sulmona (Abruzzo)

Sulmona is a city of the province of L'Aquila in Abruzzo. It is in Valle Peligna, a plateau once occupied by a lake that disappeared in prehistoric times. Sulmona is known for being the native town of Ovid, of whom there is a bronze statue in the square known as Piazza XX Settembre located on the town's main road also under his name. The city has various piazzas, churches and palaces of historical and touristic interest. Some of these include: Sulmona Cathedral, Piazza XX Settembre and Corso Ovidio. Sulmona is the home of the Italian confectionery known as confetti. These are sugar coated almonds and are traditionally given to friends and relatives on weddings and other special occasions. Confetti can be eaten or simply used as decoration. The local artisans also color these candies and craft them into flowers and other creations. There are two main factories in town and several shops that sell these items.

@tesoro2010 asks:

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?

@taranis asks:

Ciao a tutti di nuovo.

Just on to say thanks to all contributors answering questions, particularly Modicassa and Ugo.
