Is a region of Southern Italy with an area of 10,763 square km and a population of 1.2 million. The region is divided into the four provinces: L’Aquila, Teramo, Pescara, and Chieti. Its western border lies 80 km east of Rome. Abruzzo borders the region of Marche to the north, Lazio to the west and south-west, Molise to the south-east, and the Adriatic Sea to the east.

Almost half of the region’s territory is protected through national parks and nature reserves, more than any administrative region on the continent, leading it to be dubbed “the greenest region in Europe. There are three national parks, one regional park, and 38 protected nature reserves. These ensure the survival of rare species, such as the golden eagle, the Abruzzo (or Abruzzese) chamois, the Apennine wolf and the Marsican brown bear. It’s parks and reserves host 75% of Europe’s animal species. The region is also home to Calderone, one of Europe’s southernmost glaciers.

Geographically, the region is divided into a mountainous area to the west, which includes the Gran Sasso d’Italia, and a coastal area to the east with beaches on the Adriatic sea. Wikipedia
