This is a page devoted to the region of Abruzzo in central Italy, where I am now living. My plan is to develop this page as a one-stop reference site to all things connected to this spectacularly beautiful area.--Janet Bianchini 21:25, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
Abruzzo is a region in Italy, its western border lying less than 50 miles due east of Rome. Abruzzo borders the region of Marche to the north, Lazio to the west and south-west, Molise to the south-east, and the Adriatic Sea to the east. Although geographically more of a central than southern region, ISTAT (the Italian statistical authority) considers it part of Southern Italy, a vestige of Abruzzo's historic association with the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.
