Educational tour in the ancient Di Francesco watermill at Arsita / Visita d'istruzione al vecchio mulino Di Francesco ad Arsita - by Jolanda Ferrara
The students of a junior high school from Spoltore visited the ancient Di Francesco watermill to learn how wheat was processed in the past, and also to rediscover the dietary habits and cultural traditions of the old peasant world. The Di Francesco watermill borders the Gran Sasso - Monti della Laga National Park, just below the springs of the Fino river, whose waters are artificially conveyed from a height of 30 m to activate the two large millstones, one made from a Manoppello stone to make flour for bread and pasta, the other in local stone to obtain a coarser product used to feed animals.

INTRODACQUA - The two elderly inhabitants of Palazzo Trasmondi do not want to leave - Palazzo Trasmondi ancora abitato - Due anziane decise a non mollare - by Barbara Zarrillo
Each by herself on opposite sides of the palace, the two elderly ladies do not want to comply with the mayor's order to abandon the place for its bad conditions. Virginia Ferretti says her apartment is safe, and will leave only in cases it falls down. Silvia Costantini, 81, has always lived there and feels lost at the thought she'll be compelled to live anywhere else. Many people agree with them thinking the 5-century-old palace has already survived many earthquakes and will never fall down.
