Great idea - unfortunately not around at the moment - if you do another one late June, early July we'll be there.

Good luck with it

Hi,
I am not really local and am out of Italy anyway at the moment but I think an open house invitation is a lovely idea as a way to meet people. Hope it's a success and who knows what might come out of it.
Best wishes
V.

Dear Abruzzolutely forum members
We will be pleased to meet fellow members who live locally to us as we would like to get to know 'the locals'.This includes Italians, of course.
We have a holiday house in Manzitti , a small hamlet near Atri.
We will be holding an 'open house' welcome drink and nibbles on Friday 5th May between 12 noon and 6 pm.
If you would like to come please reply to this post by Wednesday 3rd May
Thank you , we look forward to meeting you
'La Foschia'

Not sure how many have seen this site before, but might be worth joining just to get as much information as possible as the negotiations move on ....

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?
