Snow in Abruzzo

The snow falling in these days reminds us the description of Abruzzo by the Italian geographer and theologian Giovanni Lorenzo D’Anania (Taverna, 1545 – 1609) in his Cosmography: “a  country … so mountainous and harsh, where winters are so horrible, full of snow and ice like a region of Germany“.

These photos of snowy Abruzzo taken in recent years fully confirm the 1576’s words of the scholar.
