Pescara - Cipollone, the historical barber of corso Manthoné / Cipollone, il barbiere storico di corso Manthoné
In 1897 Francesco Cipollone, Tommasos's father, opened a barber's saloon on the ground floor of D'Annunzio's home. Don Ciccillo (Francesco) was the personal barber of the poet. When Francesco died Tommaso took his place and became the barber of Mario D'Annunzio, Gabriele's son. Mario was not a wealthy man so Luigi D'Amico (the inventor of the Parrozzo, the typical Chrismas pastry from Pescara) used to pay the barber for him. One of the last times Mario went to the barber, he asked him if the Pescarese knew his father's poems. Tommaso started to recite one and Mario burst into tears.
