Loreto Aprutino is hosting rather unusual August soirees this summer with a great final setting for an aperitivo to watch the sun go down and town light up.
Each Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday this stunning small town in Pescara offers evenings of art, food, wine, and aromatic walks through time in its picturesque urban landscape, no wonder it was host to the photographer Michael Kenna when he photographed Abruzzo.

Comfortable clothing, with long trousers and walking shoes for the olive groves and hay bale seating.
The event will take place in full compliance with the anti-COVID19 legislation.
(The olive oil photographs are by the Abruzzese artist Basilio Cascella. Look out for the annual photography and art competition Premio Casella that has been hosted by Ortona since 1955 or if you are a fan of vintage postcards, have a look at his on Ebay.)
This was an absolutely brilliant evening. Knowledgeable guides who spoke English for us useless immigrants. Lovely food, good wine, and tremendous views. You definitely need sensible shoes as the streets of Loretto Aprutino are precipitous in places.Suzanne
