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.

@mozart asks:

We are about to get the keys for an apartment within a house near L'Aquila, which is a holiday home for ourselves and family. We do not intend to rent this out.  However we will need the services of a property management when we are not there to pay utility bills etc.

@queencafe asks:

Is it still a buyers market to buy a property in Italy in Abruzzo or Tuscany area with the changes in taxation for foreigners ? I know this is a very broad question but we like to purchase a two to three bedroom house or aprt near coastal area . Thank you
