Dont see what my clients have to do with it, why bring me and my business into everything? Lots of people are still buying if you must know but that is not the subject.
A little search through Facebook will come up with many recent videos of the area and some fantatsic photos. The comune of Francavilla have just released a great video, granted in Italian BUT still a great video for all to see.

Hi all its been a while... apologies. VV yep I have seen the videos ... I just hope that your customers are of the active type because nowhere does it really show the complete strengths and beauty that is Abruzzo. The majority of those videos were made in 2012.  Just to let everyone know I was with some Australians last week and they purchased a house in the Teramo region so that is positive news.However, I am certain they got a fantastic deal. I have been coming to Abruzzo for over 40 years and I still have the promotional literature which AT produced way back and in those days they tried to cater for the international market, unfortunately in my opinion they have gone backwards.  Please do not have goes, this is only my opinion.
I regularly try to promote Abruzzo via Linked in and through Facebook using photographs but it is tough going and I find I get more response from Italians, which is terribly sad. 

I have also had comments from Italian friends in Castelli who are desperate for Tourists as they suffered so badly though the earth tremors and the snow. I suppose what I am saying in an extremely long winded way is that we are all responsible for promoting this region and I am certain all of us do our bit so keep up the great work. . Carol a big hug to you - it has been ages since I saw you.

I think all countries are guilty of wasting EU money!!!!
To be able to further promote a place surely its good to have the infrastructure in place, i cant help but see the positives in this master plan, afterall its money needed and very welcome. Which parts do you think are a waste of money?
Dont know about anyone else but i am starting to see lots of quality advertising on the web, have you seen the visit Abruzzo facebook videos recently?

Thanks for the post

I have heard many things about this ,and its always a difficult subject to discuss, in the fact that it involves personal finance.The system doesnt seem as simple as in the UK.To that end  I shall leave it to my commercialista to sort out,after all thats what I pay him for!

Thanks for the link VV
Lets see what actually gets spent and where,from what I can understand the funds are coming from the EU and in my opinion some are a complete waste of money and excellent examples of what triggered Brexit!
Also from what I can see nothing is going to be spent on actually............promoting Abruzzo.

Time will tell.

I guess she thinks she knows how to manipulate the electorate to achieve her personal goals, so generally bad news for the UK methinks.The polls and analysis all support an increased Tory majority and a hard Brexit result for Mrs May, that's bad news as far as I am concerned.

Anyway today have joined the Lib-Dem part, first time I have ever thought of joining a political party in my life, just because they are the only party who seem to have any anti-Brexit backbone.
