L'Aquila / Campo 78 Tour - Friday 21 September 2018 0930
« Last post by stefanaccio on August 30, 2018, 01:18:54 PM »
Campo 78, also known as Prigione di Guerra 78 – is an Italian, former prisoner of war camp located at Fonte d’Amore, just outside the town of Sulmona in the Abruzzo region of central Italy. It was in use during both World Wars and during WWII it held as many as 3,000 British & Commonwealth servicemen – many of whom had been captured during the North African campaigns.  In 2014, a local nonprofit association “Una Fondazione Per Il Morrone” was established to organize visits to the area which otherwise is not open to the public.

In collaboration with the Fondazione, a private visit to Campo 78 is scheduled Friday, 21 September 2018 at 0930. We have arranged for a free, two-hour private tour with an English-speaking guide. A 5 euro/person donation is highly encouraged. Ours hosts want to know the size of the group for this tour so, if you could be so kind, contact me if you plan to attend. I can also answer or pass on your questions about this exciting and informative visit especially arranged for the anglophone community.  GRAZIE!!

Wishing all a pleasant and peaceful day. According to the locals here, autumn begins tomorrow!
Good, autumn is probably our second favourite season here, with spring being number one and summer down in third place for us... Although to be honest there is something we love about all of the seasons here.

Capestrano has a film festival on 23rd ..26th August amazing for such a small village.look up http://www.stranofilmfestival.com/en/2018-edition/ 
It's the second year not only the films but canoe, bikes, wine, oil tasting, visit to farms etc  lots going on . It's the second year, I missed last year(rented ) but looking forward to this years events. I am not renting my house out for the event this year but helping the director with the accommodation and doing b@b .. that should be interesting ! He  doesn't  want hotel and coach and rather people stay in the village.

Weather is awful at the moment, do hope it clears up for those looking to attend, but it looks like it may be 22:00 before it does :( But Saturday and Sunday look okay :)

It's also the San Giorgio (near Castiglione M.R.) festa tonight, tomorrow and Sunday. A very simple affair with the usual food, drinks and dancing to a band but we're a friendly, welcoming bunch and parking is available very close by for a change. I think tonight may well be washed out though as it's chucking it down presently and looks like it's here to stay for the evening.

Thanks Levi. That would be the only one that fits where we were viewing from, but that is near on 60km distant. So it must have been some display they put on.

Here is the page for 2 July. I think only some of the events are publicised. Might have been the one in Chieti?
