City of Pescara - Italy

pescara italy  
Bright and modern city at the mouth of the homonymous river, partly on the site of the ancient town Amiternum, whose ruins have been found in several areas of the land. During the late republican age, it was a landing place for Italic people; in the imperial age it was the main port of the region, destroyed by Longobards in 600 A.D. But in the XII century it was still a thriving place until its prosperity was damaged by the destructions which followed the Norman wars.

Not even a huge system of defensive works, whose construction was ordered by Charles V as a bulwark of the Kingdom of Naples, could keep it safe from incursions and sieges. In 1927 it became chief town of province as a result of the fusion of two towns located in the north and in the south of the mouth of the river: Castellamare Adriatico and Pescara. The present name was preferred to "Amiternum" to honour Gabriele D'Annunzio, who was born in the area in the south of the river.

It was consecrated in 1900, when it was still unfinished, in order to replace the small Church of St Anne, located inside Villa Muzii along Viale G.Bovio, which was no longer able to contain the increasing number of the inhabitants of the town in 1900.
