Thank you 🍷 @titi_peputa 🍷, for sharing your vineyard view in Abruzzo. Yes please, and thank you.

Despite the terrible earthquake that hit L'Aquila and the Abruzzo in 2009, this region deserves a visit, like a leap in the past.

While many areas of Italy have changed significantly over time, Abruzzo remains largely the same. Abruzzo, which is also known as Abruzzi, is located in south central Italy between the central Apennines and the Adriatic coast. The vaguely rectangular shaped region covers 10,794km² and is bordered by Marche, Umbria, Lazio, Molise, and the Adriatic Sea. With a population of only 1.3 million Abruzzo is one of the least populated regions in Italy.

The regional capital of Abruzzo is L'Aquila. There are four provinces in Abruzzo: Pescara, Chieti, Teramo, and L'Aquila. The first persons to settle in Abruzzo belonged to an Italic tribe called the Picenians. Early settlers formed small communities based mainly on agriculture and fishing. Little in the way of trade or commerce flowed through Abruzzo for quite some time because the nearby sea was difficult to negotiate.
The economy of Abruzzo is still largely based on agriculture and animal husbandry. Chief crops include carrots, potatoes, spinach, peppers, tomatoes, figs and plums.
