Our Life In Abruzzo community is a vibrant and diverse collective of Abruzzophiles from all over the world who love to share and exchange all about Abruzzo, Italy’s rocky heart!
We are a thriving broad church, a mix of all ages from 2 to 90, those who live and work in Abruzzo, some who have retired in Abruzzo to enjoy the 7% Flat Rate Tax and others who live in Italy, Europe, The Americas, and Australia.
Many of our members have Abruzzese ancestry, some have ancestral family homes here whilst others have holiday homes or just simply adore visiting the region on holiday.
How Many of us Are There?
In 2022, our reach spanned 365,000 people across our website, Facebook group and social media and newsletter!
We don’t require a membership or readership fee from our community, there are no contracts and we don’t make a profit from any of our pop-up activities.
We believe the best way we can help people learn about Abruzzo and stem the depopulation of rural communities is to keep all our information optimised, free and available to everyone to read, and when time allows to come together for events offline and online.
Fostering Independent Connections On and Offline
We seamlessly come together both online and offline to share stories and recipes, knowlege, tips.
Our aim is to foster genuine connections and local knowledge through the All About Abruzzo Blog that allows everyone to share a story. We support businesses and artisans through our Abruzzo Directory that in turn allows us to be independent and sustainable, create small gatherings and pop-up adventures in villages, cities, walks, wine tastings, lunches, and fundraising events.
We are NOT tour guides, but rather arrange informal online and offline pop-up events with passionate members of our community who possess an ardent desire to share their knowledge and love for this enchanting region. These range in size, from intimate gatherings to larger affairs, exemplified by the recent assembly of 50 enthusiasts for our urban tour and goats cheese tasting in Atri, our ‘Sunday Live in Abruzzo’ slots on Zoom saw over 100 members regularly coming together to take part in our forums during the pandemic.
We take pride in creating a cross platform community that transcends traditional boundaries. As an independent body we actively use our collective English language voice for campaigning on environmental and animal (domesticated and wildlife) issues within the region and increase awareness outside Italy of Europe’s greenest region.
