Abruzzo: Autumn Trees

Abruzzo: Autumn trees

Abruzzo is a region in Italy, its western border lying less than 50 miles (80 km) due east of Rome. With an area of 10,794 km2 (4,168 sq mi), and bordered on the east by the Adriatic and on the west by the Apennines, it is one of the most mountainous regions in Italy.

My great grandparents – Franco and Magdalena Scatena – were both born in the Abruzzo‘s “village” of Capistrello.
