Promoting Abruzzo


Displaced residents from Aquila and other affected towns in the area are being housed temporarily in Agriturismos throughout the Abruzzo area, some more than an hour away from their homes.  Agriturismo – a combination of the words for “agriculture” and “tourism” in Italian – is a style of vacationing in farm house resorts codified into Italian law in 1985. Agriturismos are working farms that open their doors to tourism in order to supplement the income of farmers that might not otherwise be able to continue their agricultural endeavors.  Many are now occupied by the displaced residents but as permanent housing is constructed and Agriturismos open once again to the public we will post a list of these vacation opportunities.
